Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees are large, hairy bees that build their nests in burrows in dead wood, bamboo, or structural timbers.  There are nearly 500 species of carpenter bees worldwide.


Carpenter Bee Facts:

  • Male carpenter bees do not have stingers.  While female bees have the ability to sting, they usually don't unless they are provoked or in a dangerous situation.
  • Carpenter bees can drill into almost any type of wood.  However, painting or staining wood can sometimes prevent this from happening, as they prefer bare woods.
  • Female carpenter bees chew through wood to create tunnels.  Tunnel openings usually appear small from the outside but can be up to 10 feet deep.  The tunnels are used to protect eggs and store food.
