Are ground bees any threat to chickens if they have access to the area of the ground nest? I have a nest in the ground along their larger (while we are home) enclosure. If disturbed they like to swarm and attack the intruder. I found them accidently this morning, and too bad I wasn't in the 100m at the Olympics. I'm worried they might swarm the chickens if they start scratching in the general area. Thanks in advance for any advice/info. Edit: Any advice on how to get rid of them, besides 5 gallons of gas and a few missing eyebrows?
