Baton Rouge, LA Carpenter Bee Exterminator Near You
(Carpenter Bee Removal)

Fox Pest Control provides experienced carpenter bee exterminators in Baton Rouge, LA and the surrounding area. Carpenter Bees look like less-fuzzy bumblebees — we also provide Baton Rouge bee removal, wasp removal, yellow jacket removal, and hornet removal services. Despite their innocent appearance, these pests can cause major damage to your Baton Rouge home. Female Carpenter Bees will burrow into wood, creating a tunnel to lay eggs. Carpenter Bees are not aggressive towards humans unless bothered or handled. They are typically alone, but will use the same tunnels each year, causing major damage to woodwork in homes. This can lead to moisture and decay, creating nearly termite-level damage. If you have carpenter bees in your home, it is recommended that you hire a carpenter bee removal expert instead of trying to solve the problem yourself. Fox Pest Control is here to help. Our team of highly-trained technicians will help you rid your home of carpenter bees quickly. Call (225) 228-4757 or email us.

FAQs About Carpenter Bee Removal in Baton Rouge, LA

How do I get rid of carpenter bees in Baton Rouge?

Carpenter bees are extremely hardy. Getting rid of them in Baton Rouge requires very powerful measures. Non-professional methods often aren’t effective, and the bees simply move to a different location nearby. Fox Pest Control's affordable carpenter bee removal experts have the best tools that will get rid of the bees for good.

Why do carpenter bees burrow into wood?

They tunnel into the wood to make their nests. Much like ants, carpenter bees make galleries where they store their eggs. Carpenter bees don’t eat wood; their burrowing through wood is what causes damage to your home.

Do carpenter bees sting?

Only female carpenter bees can sting, and they don’t like to do it very often. Carpenter bees rarely sting unless the nest is threatened. Males can sometimes try to intimidate intruders by flying close to the face, but they don’t have a stinger and are completely harmless. 

Are carpenter bees aggressive?

Unlike some wasps and bees in Baton Rouge, carpenter bees don’t go after people very often. Unless their nest is disturbed, they don’t usually sting. 

Do carpenter bees live in colonies?

Unlike honey bees or yellow jackets that make huge colonies, carpenter bees are solitary.

Do female carpenter bees leave their nest?

After the female makes tunnels into the wood for her eggs, she leaves the tunnel to collect flower pollen, which she tucks into the egg galleries. Using the chewed pulp from the wood, the female seals off the gallery. As the egg develops, it eats the pollen and eventually finds its way out.

How do carpenter bees survive the winter?

As the weather gets colder in Baton Rouge, the carpenter bees look for a nice warm gallery dug out of wood. They stay there until the weather warms up again. Some bees may die during the winter, but many survive and return in the spring.
