Identifying Carpenter Bees
Traps for Carpenter Bees
Unlike the more common honey bee, carpenter bees are large and mostly hairless, with a long blue-black body, roughly the size of a bumblebee. Their stingers are not barbed and though this means they can sting multiple times, they aren’t extremely aggressive. In fact, the males don’t sting at all, despite their in-your-face menacing behavior. Evidence of a carpenter bee nest comes from holes bored in unfinished or unpainted wood, particularly rails and posts for wooden fences, as the soft, exposed tops are easier to excavate. The holes are often marked by yellowish nectar, bee excrement, and sawdust, and are large to accommodate the bees’ big bodies. Carpenter bees are also solitary, making nests only for their mate and their offspring, not a whole colony. While this means a smaller infestation, it does mean that a large amount of the bees in a small area means multiple nests. Carpenter bees also like to use previously-dug nests, as excavation takes time and energy. This causes increasingly larger tunnels and a drastically increased chance for structural weakening. These tunnels can split window frames or the slats of wooden furniture, create weakpoints in joints and walls, and allow access to other wood-borne insects, like termites, to gain entry into your home. Woodpeckers also like to eat the young of the bees, creating more holes and increasing carpenter bee damage repair costs for your home.
What Are The Best Carpenter Bee Solutions
Best Carpenter Bee Traps
Once you identify an infestation, the next step is addressing the problem. Sprayed poisons and traditional insecticides aren’t useful in dealing with carpenter bees, but luckily there are carpenter bee traps that are incredibly effective at managing the pests. Bee traps work on the premise that the bees prefer to not have to dig their own nests. The device is constructed out of a piece of wood with a hole similar to what a carpenter bee would dig, which leads to a tunnel from which the bee cannot escape and in which they eventually die. These tunnels can also be filled with a poison to ensure the death the bee, but both varieties work very well. Hanging the traps in the eves of your home, or wherever you see the bees in early spring, draws the insects in, and by killing the males and females before they reproduce, you can keep the population low and prevent widespread infestation.
