Carpenter Bee Control in the Area
Often mistaken for bumble bees, carpenter bees are commonly found in Spring and early Summer, buzzing around eaves and around wooden porch railings. Getting their name from their habit of boring holes into wood to create nests for reproduction. Carpenter bees are known to cause substantial damage to untreated wood, especially if the insects go unchecked for long periods of time. Contact us today for expert bee control services!
How Can I Tell If I Have Carpenter Bees?
Carpenter bees are often confused with bumble bees because they are similar in color and size, as they can grow in length from ½ an inch to 1 ½ inches in length. Unlike bumble bees, their belly is black and shiny.
Signs of a carpenter bee infestation are:
Holes about ½ of an inch in diameter in wood that is unfinished or bare.
Sawdust on the ground underneath the bored holes

What Are the Dangers of Carpenter Bees?
Typically, carpenter bees are not aggressive and there isn’t a high risk of stinging unless they are threatened.
