There are many different species of ground nesting bees in New Hampshire, none of which are particularly aggressive. Unlike honeybees that live in communal hives, ground nesting bees are solitary, meaning that each female bee will create her own nest to lay her eggs in. The evidence of ground nesting bee activity is usually most apparent in early spring. The nests are often quite obvious, appearing on the soil surface as small piles of dirt with single large holes in the center.
