Carpenter Bee Control, Treatment & Inspections

Have you noticed large, black bees hovering around the outside of your home? They are likely carpenter bees looking for a favorable site to build their nest. These bees are generally harmless unless attacked, so it is best to leave them alone. They will, however, inflict damage on your wood structures unless you receive professional help.

At Harris Pest Control, we have been eliminating carpenter bees quickly and effectively since 1973. Call us today for a free inspection!

Signs of Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees will tunnel into wood in order to build a nest. Typical sites include wood siding, eaves, window trim, decks, and wooden outdoor furniture. These wood-destroying bees generate sawdust piles and frass, a mixture of excrement and body parts, around the entry holes.

When carpenter bees tunnel, they make a perfectly round hole around the size of a nickel and go in roughly an inch, making a sharp turn. Inside this tunnel they lay their eggs and place a ball of pollen for the eggs to feed on. They continue to bring new pollen back to the nest through the spring and summer.
