How Carpenter Bees Got their Name
Carpenter Bees make holes in unpainted wood. The entry hole is 3/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter and initially about 6-inches long. After many years, these holes can extend many feet. These holes provide a place for the carpenter bees to nest and raise their young. Often, your home’s eaves provide the perfect spot for their nest. Once they have made a home, the bees will return to the same spot each year. These bees look like large bumble bees. They rarely sting but will hover over people and “buzz” by.
