Southeastern MA Carpenter Bee Exterminator Near You
(Carpenter Bee Removal)

Fox Pest Control provides experienced carpenter bee exterminators in Southeastern MA and the surrounding area. Carpenter Bees look like less-fuzzy bumblebees — we also provide Southeastern MA bee removal, wasp removal, yellow jacket removal, and hornet removal services. Despite their innocent appearance, these pests can cause major damage to your Southeastern MA home. Female Carpenter Bees will burrow into wood, creating a tunnel to lay eggs. Carpenter Bees are not aggressive toward 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 (508) 576-5662 or email us.

Signs of a Carpenter Bee Infestation in Southeastern MA

You might already know for sure that you have a carpenter bee problem (after all, you’re probably here because you’re looking for carpenter bee removal near you). But here are a couple of the most common signs that carpenter bee exterminators in Southeastern MA look for:

Wood Damage

The most common sign of carpenter bees is perfect circular holes drilled in wood. Carpenter bee holes can be found in uncured wood siding, roofing, wooden decks or deck furniture, fencing, telephone poles, wooden mailbox posts, etc.

Sightings

An active carpenter bee nest may have a male that patrols the area. However, males are more aggressive than females but completely harmless because they don’t have a stinger.

Things You Need to Know About Carpenter Bees in Southeastern MA:

  • People often mistake carpenter bees for bumble bees. Here are some ways to pick a carpenter bee out from a crowd:
    • They’re about 1 inch long.
    • Carpenter bees have a black and shiny abdomen with no hair, while a bumble bee’s abdomen is covered in hair.
    • They appear shiny.
    • They drill their way through wood.
  • Carpenter bees in Southeastern MA are so successful at reproducing because:
    • The tunnels they’ve drilled can be up to 10 feet long.
    • Females lay eggs in the wood cavities, fill them with pollen, and cover the holes with sawdust.

Carpenter bee treatment & removal services can be affordable, hassle-free, and can even come with same-day service*.

FAQs About Carpenter Bee Removal in Southeastern MA

How do I get rid of carpenter bees in Southeastern MA?

Carpenter bees are extremely hardy. Getting rid of them in Southeastern MA 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 Southeastern MA, 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 Southeastern MA, 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.

Fox Pest Control Southeastern MA Reviews

I had a great first experience with Fox Pest Control after a neighbor's recommendation. I live in my first home and noticed some carpenter ants around the outside of the house as spring started so I gave Fox a call. They set up an inspection and treatment for the following week and explained the process thoroughly. The tech who came (Jonathan) was great -- super knowledgeable, friendly and professional. I'll use Fox again!

I have used Fox Pest control for a couple of years now. The Boston team is one of the best. Our property has been serviced by them and we work routinely with Xavier Gutierrez. He is very professional and meticulous in the way he works. We are very glad to have him as our partner and look forward to working with him and the Fox team going forward!
