Carpenter bees are solitary bees. They build nests just for themselves and only feed their own young. They get their name from their ability to drill through wood. Carpenter bee stingers are not barbed, so they are able to sting over and over again. Many people think they have stinging bumblebees when they see large, black bees hovering in the air near wooden buildings. These are not bumblebees but male carpenter bees, also called wood bees. Male carpenter bees do not have stingers, but the females do.The female carpenter bees carve circular holes as entrances to tunnels they excavate inside unpainted wood. Carpenter bees can eventually seriously weaken wood they tunnel into. Call Armor Pest Control today to eliminate these pests. We will be happy to give you with a free estimate and home inspection.
