Wood Bees, Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees get their name from their ability to drill through wood and nest in the hole.  Their drilling creates a near-perfect hole, approximately 1/2 inch in diameter.  The hole is usually located on the underside of the wood surface; including siding, soffits, decks, overhangs, fence posts and window frames.   Although the hole appears to be only an inch or two deep, it rarely ends there.  

  • The female carpenter bee will turn 90 degrees and bore a channel from 6 inches to as long as 4 feet.  This channel serves as a main corridor from which she will drill small chambers a few inches deep.  These chambers become egg holders.  She will deposit an egg, bring in a mass of pollen for the newly hatched larvae to feed on, and then seal it all off to ensure it's development before she repeats the process for the next egg.
  • The male spends most of his time flying around the nest playing guard.   This is ironic as nature has left him ill prepared: he has no stinger!  Only the female can sting.  Simply killing the male will not solve your problem.  You must treat the nest.
