Carpenter Bees

If you see large, black bees around your home, they may be carpenter bees. Have you spotted perfectly-round holes with small piles of sawdust or yellow waste nearby? That may be the work of a female carpenter bee, boring a hole for her nest to shelter her eggs.

About Carpenter Bees

During springtime in the Carolinas, female carpenter bees look for abandoned nests or bore holes in wood to create new ones. Exposed, unpainted wood surfaces are their preferred entry points, including: decks, porches or overhangs. Their nests contain eggs, larvae and brooding chambers. Over time, the nesting tunnels of carpenter bees can extend several feet, causing damage to the wood around your home. In the late summer, the new generation of carpenter bees will emerge from these nests and the cycle continues.

At Bug Ivey, our experts can identify and treat the problem, protecting your home and property.
