Carpenter Bees Control & Removal
You might notice large, black bees hovering around the outside of your home. These are usually carpenter bees looking for a favorable site to build their nest. Carpenter bees make their nest by "drilling" into wood structures like decks, patio furniture, etc.
The problem with carpenter bees is that once they establish their nests they will be present every time you go outside or have guests. They are large bees that will make people very uncomfortable to be around.
Call JS Pest Control at the earliest sign of an infestation.
Signs of infestation
If you see one large bee hovering in the spring, that is a carpenter bee looking for suitable wood to bore into for a nest. If you see more than one bee there are likely to be holes.
Sometimes you will see sawdust outside beneath an entry hole. They make a perfectly round hole around the size of a nickel.
Call now if you see multiple large bees.

Are Carpenter Bees harmful?
These bees are generally harmless unless attacked so it is best to leave them alone; however, they can damage any wood structure if they choose to build their home inside it. Carpenter bees bore holes about ½ an inch in diameter and potentially 10 inches deep. They create several chambers and tunnels called “galleries” where carpenter bees reside, lay eggs and overwinter as adults. A ball of pollen is placed in the nest for the eggs to feed on through the Spring and Summer. The more galleries built, the weaker your wood structure becomes. Typical sites include wood siding, eaves, fascia boards, window trim, decks and wooden outdoor furniture.
