Three Easy Ways To Identify A Carpenter Bee Infestation

  1. Perfectly circular holes, about the size of a dime, in wood; porches, railings, ceilings.
  2. Carpenter bees often eliminate their waste before entering their tunnels. Yellowish-brown staining from voided fecal matter may be visible on the wood beneath the hole.
  3. Dust piles and mounds may be visible beneath the holes as well because carpenter bees don’t eat wood, they burrow through it, pushing out sawdust as they go.

Pests Commonly Confused with Carpenter Bees

  1. Carpenter bees are most often mistaken for bumble bees, but differ in that they have a black shiny tail section.
  2. Carpenter ants might also be confused with carpenter bees. Although the two look noticeably different, carpenter ants leave sawdust where they burrow, thus allowing for some confusion if the pest is not seen.

What Do Carpenter Bees Look Like?
Carpenter bees are fury, large, black and yellow bees frequently seen in spring hovering around the eaves of a house or the underside of a deck or porch rail.

  • Carpenter bees, like their distant relatives, the carpenter ants, differ from termites in that they do not consume the wood as food. They simply excavate tunnels for nesting sites.
  • The males do not have stingers, but they are territorial and will harass other bees and people who venture near their protected areas. Females can sting, but rarely do so unless confined in your hand or highly agitated.

What To Expect From Our Treatment

Target The Source: First we identify and target the source of your pest problem with our custom treatment.

Inside Treatment: We then treat unfinished basements, garages, crawl spaces, trash areas, attics, wall voids, and even inside electrical sockets. Wherever there is the possibility for a pest to enter your home or make residence, we create a barrier to protect you. We deploy a variety of techniques depending on what works best for your situation, including residual powder, gel, and bait.

Outside Treatment: We create a protective barrier around your home using a granular base around the foundation. We then treat windows and doors, as well as under siding, to keep the pests out. We will also place a granular bait in your flower and mulch beds so that bait is taken back to any potential nests, destroying them.

For the past 10+ years we’ve helped protect over 200,000 homes. We are Orange County’s preferred Exterminator and Pest Control Company.
