Bumblebees. They sting hard.

Probably wasps. Much more aggressive than the rare bumblebee sting.

Ground bees. Those are not wasps.

You ever been stung by a bumblebee? Hits like a hammer. You disturb a nest and they are no longer passive.

My dad's been a beekeeper as long as I've been alive. I know a honeybee from a bumblebee. I wasn't there, clearly no idea the referenced experience. Spending years in the woods, been attacked by ground bees and wasps many times, mostly yellow jackets (wasps) never bumblebees. Your region may vary.

I was mowing and disturbed a bumblebee nest (didn’t know it was there ). Got stung in the forehead by one and felt like I was hit with a hammer.

Are there other bees besides bumblebees the nest in the ground?

That's bound to happen when to stumble upon a stack of Discraft mids.

How common are ground bees?
Very common. While it’s easy to think of bees and their hives, the truth is that most in their taxonomic family are solitary—often burrowing in the ground, rather than living in colonies with social castes, such as the honey bee. So even if you’re surprised to be learning about ground bees, they actually are a very common subset of the Apoidea family. In fact, according to the Cornell College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, around 70% of the 20,000 species of bees nest underground.
