Common Places to Find Carpenter Bees
In our service areas, the most common places to find carpenter bees are in the deck or the facia boards on the edge of a building’s roof. If there is unpainted or untreated wood in the area, carpenter bees will infest those areas first before going after painted wood.
Although carpenter bees live only one year, future generations will re-infest the same holes year after year so damage tends to get worse with time if it’s not stopped.
Males keep watch on the nest while females lay their eggs. Although male bees, which are smaller than the females, often aggressively dart at passers by, there is no need to worry: male carpenter bees cannot sting you because they don’t have stingers.
Making sure your deck, pergola, and facia boards are all painted and monitored frequently for activity is a great way to help reduce your chances of carpenter bee damage to your home.
