CARPENTER BEES

With spring in the air and the weather getting warmer outside the Carpenter Bees will be out in full force. The Carpenter Bees are active during the summer season. They like untreated wood.

 

Description: Large, black and yellow “bubble bee” looking bug. It has a shiny, black rear end and drills 1/2 inch round holes in wood on homes and garages. Females can sting – males can’t, but are aggressive. Male and female look the same and can’t be differentiated to the naked eye. Stings from Carpenter Bees are rare.

Treatment.: We suggest monthly treatments outside during the summer season.
