CARPENTER BEES NATURE & THEIR INFESTATION CONTROL
Anyone who has spent countless time outdoors knows that carpenter bees can
be intimidating with their hovering, death “stares” and darting movement. However, despite their menacing, “ready-to-fight” demeanor, these bees are generally harmless. Carpenter bees are pollinators who are an asset to the environment but can sometimes cause aesthetic damage to various structures on a homeowner’s property. So, what can you do about it? Can you even get rid of carpenter bees or do you just have to deal with their annoyances
What Type of Wood do Carpenter Bees prefer?
Is there a particular type of wood that carpenter bees would rather nest in? Precisely yes! When a female carpenter bee is looking to nest, she typically prefers bare, unpainted or weathered softwoods.
Types of wood carpenter bees prefer to nest in include:
Pressure treated or painted wood is less susceptible to carpenter bee nesting. Although they prefer bare wood, don’t be surprised if you find them nesting on your wood-stained deck as the stain isn’t as much as a deterrent as paint. The wood stains are less reliable than paint but could provide some degree of repellency as opposed to having bare wood.
Common Areas for Carpenter Bee Nesting
Wooden roof plates
Carpenter bees are commonly known as hole drillers because of their usual habits of making holes in wood. Carpenter bees are commonly found worldwide with several species, but the most common one is Xylocopa virginica. Its typically the most destructive carpenter bee found in all world continents.
CARPENTER BEE IDENTIFICATION
Carpenter bees are fairly large, 12.5 to 25 mm in length. They resemble bumblebees, except that their abdomen is smooth and mostly hairless. Carpenter Bees can look like Bumble Bees; large, with yellow and black patterns. They are about one inch and may have some metallic reflections ranging from dark blue, yellow, green or purple tints. Their abdomens are shiny, which are different from Bumble Bees, which have more hair. They are commonly sighted in the spring hovering like a helicopter around eaves, porch rails, and under decks. Some times carpenter bees are called “wood bees”, because they bore into wood. Carpenter Bees do not eat the wood for nutrition. Carpenter bees, as pollinators eat nectar and pollen from flowering plants.
The female carpenter bee bores a channel or main corridor in wood from 6 ” to as long as 4 feet to lay their eggs in “galleries”. She deposits an egg into the gallery, brings in a mass of pollen for the newly hatched larvae to feed on, and then seals it all off to ensure its development before she repeats the process for the next egg.
Although, they are a wood boring insect, they are not considered a true bee structural pest. They do not spread through out the entire structure, but prefer unpainted or finished wood. Male carpenter bees are very territorial, but they have no stinger. Females have a potent stinger, but seldom sting.
Female carpenter bees make holes in wood in order to deposit their eggs. They make their galleries in almost any wooden object they find. They attack decks, siding, landscape timbers, roof frame timbers and even lawn furniture. They seem to prefer unpainted and unstained wood, but they will also attack painted or stained wood.
