Often confused for bumble bees, carpenter bees tunnel into wooden structures around homes, causing damage to decks and patios. These bugs are excellent pollinators and tend not to cause much of a problem to homeowners. The males can be aggressive when warm weather first arrives, but don’t worry, only the females have stingers, and they rarely sting.
WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE?
- Shiny and hairless.
- Resemble bumble bees.
WHERE DO THEY LIVE?
- 500 hundred species found around the world.
HOW DO I DEAL WITH THEM?
Carpenter bees should only be eliminated when necessary, as they are beneficial bugs. To deter them from damaging your deck, simply apply paint or varnish to the wood. If you need help getting rid of these bees, call U.S. Pest today!
