Leave Me Bee...Carpenter Bees!

June 8, 2017

Carpenter bees look like typical bumblebees but often lack yellow stripes. This type of stinging bee gets its common name from its habit of boring into wood like a carpenter

 

Carpenter bees do not live in nests or colonies. Instead, female carpenter bees bore circular holes through soft wood to lay eggs and protect their larvae as they develop.

 

Carpenter bees can also be found inside wooden playsets, wooden decks, and wood sheds.  They can also attack the wood behind your home's siding.  

 

 

Carpenter bees prefer bare wood, so painting and staining wood can sometimes help deter them. However, they will sometimes attack stained or painted wood, so contact Leave Me Bee for a free inspection.
