How can I get rid of ground/miner bees that are in a hard to reach juniper bed?
These bees return every year and seem to number in the thousands. There also seems to be more and more each year. They swarm in the heat of the day and are living along the edge of my yard in a massive Juniper bed. The Junipers are mature and thick, so I can't even see their holes/nests, but when they are active, they are very intimidating and create concern for child safty.
A good treatment of Talstar should help do the trick. However, if the junipers are really thick, then you need to apply quite a bit for the product to get down to the ground where the bees are nesting.
