Carpenter Bees

Carpenter Bees are typically seen buzzing around eves and roof lines in the early Spring. While their large size and yellow and black markings make them look intimidating they do not pose a threat unless provoked. Their preferred nesting areas are dry unfinished wood. The female bores a perfectly round hole approx. 1/4 inch around and then makes a 90 degree turn were she places her eggs in segmented galleries. The extensive damage done can be hidden behind the entrance hole.
