Large black with a single yellow strip and living under ground sounds like bumble bees to me. They will swarm you and sting you if disturbed. When a kid about 60 years ago, a friend and I use to take a shingle or bolo paddle or tennis racket and hunt down the nests and then see if we could fight off the bumble bees without getting stung - we didn't have sprays and stuff like you can buy now. worked pretty much, but some times rolling on the ground and swatting each time we could worked best.
