Southeast Michigan, Metro Detroit & Ann Arbor Area Carpenter Bee Treatment

Carpenter Bee

How to Identify A Carpenter Bee Infestation?

There are many species of bees throughout SE Michigan. You can check out our bee page for more information about that. You are probably most familiar with bumblebees and honey bees but what about those bees that burrow in your wood siding?

Those extra-large, lumbering bees are called carpenter bees. Carpenter bees, like their name suggests, work like tiny little carpenters by burrowing into wood. Their nests are typically not in trees. Instead, they prefer to make them in the siding of your home, deck, or other wooden structures.

Carpenter bees are extra-large, growing to about one inch long. They typically have black abdomens, which differentiates them from bumblebees. Carpenter bees are also solitary. They do not swarm or have a queen. Instead, every female carpenter bee is fertile.

You know you have a carpenter bee problem if you see bees matching the description above hanging around any of your wood structures. Other telltale carpenter bee signs include wood shavings underneath a wooden structure and small, boring holes in the wood.

Why You Might Have Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees nest in wood. They, like carpenter ants, prefer older, rotten wood. Be sure to watch out for carpenter bees if your home has older siding or a deck with wood-rot.

Carpenter bees do not eat the wood, they just nest in it. Your home will be even more attractive if you provide food for them such as flowers and plants in your house or yard which can certainly make your space attractive to carpenter bees.

Reasons to Treat Your Carpenter Bee Problem Immediately

Thankfully, carpenter bees are some of the less aggressive bees which rarely ever sting. But, if you or someone in your family is allergic to bee stings, a carpenter bee can still trigger anaphylactic shock.

Additionally, carpenter bees can cause major damage your home. Their burrow holes are not only unsightly, they may lead to potential structural damage.

If you notice carpenter bees living in your Detroit Metro or Ann Arbor home, call Guardian Pest Control immediately. Don’t wait. Female carpenter bees lay their eggs in wood and seal it up causing you to easily end up with a huge problem on your hands if you are not vigilant.

Let the carpenter bee exterminators at Guardian Pest Control look at any damage, seal entry-points, and eliminate Carpenter Bees from your home and yard. Contacting us today will help keep you and your family safe.
