Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees might look similar to bumblebees but they are far more problematic as they can damage your property and sting your family, friends, and employees.

Do not let the resemblance of carpenter bees to bumblebees fool you. Carpenter bees are a danger to your home thanks to their wood-boring capabilities, as well as their general ability to sting. While carpenter bees don't eat wood, they like to make their homes in wood and are therefore often attracted to wooden homes. However, any home can attract them as almost every siding has wood underneath, even brick.

Carpenter bees can burrow as deep as 1-2 feet into a structure and if the carpenter bees like your home they may even nest there for generations, becoming a larger and larger problem. This is not even mentioning the fact that they can cause painful stings when disturbed and are a danger to anyone with allergies.

Important carpenter bee information

  • Carpenter bees look very similar to bumblebees but with a few differences that are really only noticeable to experts. Unlike bumblebees, carpenter bees have a black abdomen with no yellow hair. They also have no pollen baskets on their back legs and don't nest in the ground but in wood (hence the problem).
  • Carpenter bees are not picky about what type of wood they nest in. They only require that there is sufficient room and food. They create extensive burrows and can sometimes burrow as much as 1-2 feet into a structure.
  • Carpenter bees are also far less social than their bumblebee cousins who dwell in massive hives. 
  • Carpenter bee females have stingers and will sting when disturbed while males don't have stingers, like most bee species.   
  • It is reported that at least 200 people die each year in the United States as a result of anaphylactic shock following the stings of wasps, hornets, and bees. This number does not include certain complications like automobile accidents and heart attacks that may have partially been caused by stings.
