Carpenter Bee Facts
Carpenter bees bore into unpainted or unsealed wooden structures, making perfectly round dime-sized nesting holes. The males, who are stingless, guard the nest and will actively “buzz” any people who are in the area. It’s intimidating because they are large bees and tend to target your face and head during their attacks. Keep in mind these facts:
- Carpenter bees don’t eat the wood; instead, they create structures of tunnels inside the wood to lay their eggs. They tend to tunnel in soffit/fascia areas, gazebos, or untreated wood deck railings and even wood deck furniture.
- Unlike honeybees, they are not social creatures. Usually just a pair of them live together and leave in about one week, after laying the eggs and provisioning the nest.
- If your wooden structure is appealing to them, however, many different mating pairs may call it home, making their own set of tunnels in the wood, causing a season of harassment and damage for you.
- The eggs will hatch the following year with new bees emerging.
- Carpenter bees will often return to the same nest site year after year.
- Further damage is often wrought by woodpeckers, which like to burrow for and eat the fat larvae in the wood.
Carpenter Bee Pest Control
Treatment for carpenter bees is recommended as soon as their presence is noted, as they tend to return to the same holes time after time, and their tunnels are also popular with other types of wood destroying insects. Because carpenter bees are not social insects, our treatment for them is very simple and effective. Treat each nest and eliminate each pest. Follow-up service is not typically needed for carpenter bees, but if they persist after your treatment, please let us know so that we can come back out and make it right for you ASAP.
