Ground nesting bees or mining bees usually avoid places that are damp. One of the easiest solutions is water heavily and frequently with a lawn sprinkler during their nest- building period to discourage nesting. Or, you can treat individual nest openings with Sevin dust; or spray the infested area with a turfgrass insecticide to discourage the bees. I'm not convinced the insecticides are justified for these interesting little bees but if you feel threatened by them, an insecticide might be the answer.
