Fox Pest Control’s Carpenter Bee Exterminator Service

Have you  noticed bees zooming around when you’re outside your area home? If so you may have a  carpenter bee infestation. They are relentless; no matter what you do on your own, you never seem to be able to get rid of carpenter bees. You’re probably worried about your property’s safety, and rightfully so. Fox Pest Control wants to help you control carpenter bees; we want you to feel safe and comfortable in your house again.

Signs of a Carpenter Bee Infestation

You might already know for sure that you have a carpenter bee problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs carpenter bee exterminators look for. 

Wood Damage

The most common sign of carpenter bees is 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:

  • 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 abdomen, while a bumble bee’s abdomen is covered in yellow hair.
    • They drill their way through wood.
  • Carpenter bees 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.
  • Because carpenter bees are so crafty, it’s nearly impossible to exterminate them without professional help.

Helpful Carpenter Bee Prevention Tips:

  • Remove fallen wood from your yard & protect wood piles with a waterproof covering.

Carpenter Bee Control FAQ

How do I get rid of carpenter bees?

Carpenter bees are extremely hardy. Getting rid of them requires very powerful measures. Non-professional methods often aren’t effective, and the bees simply move to a different location nearby. Fox Pest Control has 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, 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, 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.
