Giant bee’s or hornets buzzing around my front door

Q: I have these giant bee’s or hornets buzzing around my front door and going into holes in the ground, how can I get rid of them before they attack me?

A: What you most likely have is what is called a Cicada Killer, this is a solitary member of the wasp family that sometimes may nest near others of its kind and digs a tunnel into soft soils and will bury a cicada in it with an egg laid on it for the larvae to feed on, Unless you try to catch one in your hand or attempt to pick one up they generally will not attack you. As the cicada is its only prey, when the cicada population dwindles the wasps will leave the area, I generally do not recommend killing them, they are more of a nuisance than a danger.
