I had a similar experience with what sounds like the same thing. I had a roll of chain link fencing that was laying on the ground with vines growing up through it. I started to move it and these things exploded all around me. I wasn't stung but they were really aggressive and swarmed for over an hour after leaving them alone. When I tried to approach the roll they came out again. I couldn't tell at the time if they were on a nest or in the ground underneath.

I took a can of gas and pitched it at the whole roll of wire and it seemed to slow them down. Late at night they were still flying around. I didn't want to burn the wire. I got a long chain and got a hook in the wire and pulled it off and found they were all coming out of a hole in the ground that was about an inch in diameter. A long piece of pipe and a slow trickle of gas finally took care of them. They were the size of small bumble bees but all black and really fast.

Was swarmed by ground dwelling bees similar to them a couple of years ago. Made it to truck and luckily only had a few stings. Went to Lowes and got several cans of Wasp killer and drenched the whole nest from the safety of the truck. Within a few days, they had moved on. Dr. suggested keeping a couple of "epi-pens" on hand as a precaution against adverse reaction.
