Whether you have a home or business, the carpenter bee can cause serious issues. They can be quite the pest when it comes to the structural well-being of your house. These bees are known for drilling holes in the wood around homes and giving birth to a family of new carpenter bees. Over time, their drilling can lead to some serious issues with any wooden structure. If you have an infestation of carpenter bees, pest control services are vital to stopping the problem.

While in minor cases there are methods you can try on your own, it is recommended to contact professional pest control services to ensure no further damage comes to your home.

What Do Carpenter Bees Look Like?

A carpenter bee looks very much like a bumblebee. One significant difference between the two bees is that carpenter bees don’t have any hair on their stomach. They have yellow and shiny coloring and are anywhere from 12 to 25mm long. Female carpenter bees have stingers, while their male counterparts do not. The males also have fuzzy yellow patches on their faces, while the face of a female is solid black.

Are Carpenter Bees Dangerous

People should have very little to fear when it comes to carpenter bees. Only the females of the species can sting, but they will only do so if they are handled or feel threatened. Males will buzz around those who approach the nest.

The real threat from carpenter bees comes from their ability to do property damage by damaging wood in or around your home.
