How do you know if your home is threatened by these irritating insects?
Here’s what pest elimination product manufacturer Ehrlich says you should look for:
- Erratic flying: Male carpenter bees are very territorial and fly erratically around humans to protect their nests.
- Noise: They emit a sound similar to bumble bees.
- Yellow/brown stains: Caused by excrement deposited below entry holes into wood.
- Damaged wood: The appearance of nearly perfectly round half-inch holes, with piles of sawdust underneath the opening. Carpenter bees do not eat wood, they excavate it to build their nests.
