What Are Carpenter Bees?

Carpenter bees are a solitary species of bees. They’re larger than other bee species with some reaching 1 and a half inches in length. Male carpenter bees are orange and black, but females are only black. People often mistake carpenter bees for bumblebees because they look similar. The difference is that carpenter bees have a black, shiny abdomen.

Why Do I Have Carpenter Bees?

If you have carpenter bees, you have untreated softwood around your home. Carpenter bees build nests in untreated softwood and use the nest for overwintering. They’ll build tunnels in the wood near your deck, shed, and porch. Carpenter bees discard the wood and do not eat it. Since breeding pairs can return to the same nest each year, the problem is going to rapidly grow and worsen.

Is A Carpenter Bee Dangerous?

Carpenter bees aren’t dangerous, but they can create problems for you and your loved ones. Male bees of this species do not have a stinger. While they’re aggressive, they’re not going to sting. Female carpenter bees have stingers, but there is no need to worry about them stinging. They’re docile and won’t bother you. If you’re stung by a carpenter bee, there is a risk that you’re going to experience an allergic reaction. Another issue is that carpenter bees build tunnels that attract woodpeckers. You’ll need to get rid of woodpeckers because they can destroy your structure.
