Carpenter Bee Control for Your Home

Dealing with a carpenter bee infestation requires prompt and effective control measures to protect your home. These bees are not just a nuisance – they can cause considerable damage to wood structures by drilling holes to create their nests. If you’ve noticed an uptick in bee activity around your home, it’s time to consider professional removal services. At Rid-A-Critter, we specialize in carpenter bee removal, devising strategies to remove these buzzing pests safely.

Carpenter bees are stocky bees that look a lot like bumblebees. One easy way to tell them apart is that a carpenter bee’s abdomen is smooth and shiny, but a bumble bee’s abdomen is hairy. Carpenter bees can be annoying and even scary to some people. They fly through the air, chasing each other around at breakneck speeds during their mating rituals. Their aggressive flight generates an audible buzz, so they can appear very intimidating and menacing. But it’s all just a show. Male carpenter bees don’t have stingers, and the females rarely sting. Most carpenter bee exterminators don’t even wear bee suits when removing carpenter bees. Carpenter bees are also pollinators and, in that regard, are beneficial insects. Like all true bees, they travel from flower to flower, gathering nectar and distributing pollen.

With our control services, you and your family can have peace of mind, knowing that your home will no longer host unwanted bee guests. Whether it’s your deck, siding, or another area of your home, our dedicated team is ready to help. We’re committed to providing control and education on preventative practices to keep your home bee-free in the long term.

Evaluating Carpenter Bee Damage to Residential Property

Carpenter bee problems can be especially serious in Georgia & Alabama because of our many fine, old, historic wooden buildings. In our many historic cities, carpenter bee removal takes on even more importance because of historic preservation considerations. In addition to causing potentially costly structural damage, carpenter bees create unsightly stains when wax and by-products drip from the holes. These ugly stains can be very difficult to remove or paint over and may necessitate replacing the damaged wood simply for aesthetic reasons.

Carpenter bees, often confused with bumblebees due to their similar appearance, can cause significant damage to wooden structures in and around homes. Here are some common signs that you might have a carpenter bee problem:

  • Visible Holes in Wood: One of the most obvious signs of carpenter bees is round, smooth holes about the diameter of your finger (typically 1/2 inch) drilled into wood. These pests burrow into wood to create nests.
  • Sawdust Piles: As carpenter bees drill into wood, they create piles of sawdust beneath the entry holes. These piles are a clear indication of their nesting activity.
  • Buzzing Sounds: You might hear a distinct buzzing or burrowing noise from within the woodwork, which is a sign of carpenter bees at work.
  • Staining on Wood: Look for stains or discoloration around the entry holes. This staining is often caused by the bees’ waste and is a clear sign of an active nest.
  • Flying Bees: Seeing large bees hovering around eaves, deck railings, or wooden structures in your yard and around your home can be a sign they are searching for a nesting site.
  • Wood Damage: Over time, repeated nesting in the same area of wood can lead to noticeable damage. This may include weakened structures, cosmetic damage, or even holes large enough to see into.
  • Presence of Larvae: In some cases, you might notice larvae within the wood tunnels or near the entrance holes, especially during the larvae growth phase.

If you notice any of these signs, it’s important to call carpenter bee experts right away before further damage occurs. Our professionals will effectively manage a carpenter bee infestation and repair any structural damage they may have caused.

Understanding the urgency of these situations, our trained technicians are prepared to respond promptly to help alleviate any immediate threats posed by these wood-boring pests. Our comprehensive services ensure that not only is the current infestation dealt with, but we also offer advice and specific services designed to prevent future occurrences, keeping your home safe and pest-free.
