Once holes have been started, the nest galleries must be treated with professional pest control products. The holes can be plugged several weeks later when it is positive that the bees have mo. Eliminating water leaks and rotting wood from your property will make it less attractive to carpenter bees.
These and other wood destroying insects are covered under our Healthy Home Maintenance PLUS Sentricon Program.
How to Identify a Carpenter Bee
Carpenter bees resemble bumblebees in both size and color. Their abdomens are all black, with few yellow hairs and measure about 1″ long.
Carpenter bees get their name from their habit of boring into wood to make galleries where they raise their young. In natural habitats, they live in logs and dead tree limbs, while around homes they target bare wood decks, fences and window sills. They prefer weathered or bare wood to painted wood. Like carpenter ants, the softer or more rotten the wood is, the more attractive it is to these bees. While they do not pose a public health threat, their nest building does damage wood.
Carpenter bees feed on nectar.
