Removed a very large underground hornets nest from my backyard stone fire pit. Removed all the stones and dug out the pit to make sure I had all of the nest. Bees keep returning to the site, how can I get rid of them. Have dogs and kids. Thanks

The bees will keep returning to look for their old nest. You can sprinkle cinnamon around the area they are landing on. They detest the smell. They will eventually die off Or spray them with any approved insecticide.
