How to Know If You Have Carpenter Bees:

  • Carpenter bees look like shiny bumblebees

  • Carpenter bees build nests for larvae in soft, untreated wood

  • Carpenter bees nest in wooden structures, fences & furniture

  • Male carpenter bees buzz curiously and hover near nests

Reasons To Treat:

Carpenter bees dig tunnels that can cause structural damage. Acidic carpenter bee feces drip from the holes, causing difficult to remove stains that can even etch glass. Early treatment prevents more damage to your home and property. Carpenter bees hinder the enjoyment of your outdoor spaces by stinging, and buzzing loudly near the nest & around your property.

Carpenter Bee Damage to Home
