Carpenter bees are stinging insects that grow over an inch. Some of the largest members of the species can reach an inch and a half. The gender depends on the color of the stinging insect. Females are only black, but males are orange and black. They have shiny abdomen. Otherwise, they look like bumblebees.
Reasons Carpenter Bees Are In Your Home
Why have carpenter bees entered your home? Ultimately, they don’t want to enter your home. Instead, they want to remain outside and build nests on your property. They will drill holes in your wood siding, deck, and fascia. Once they’ve done this, they’ll dispose of the wood and use the hole to raise their young. They’ll severely damage your home if you let them.
Carpenter Bee Dangers
Carpenter bees can be dangerous to people and pets. It is vital to do something about them because they may sting. Nevertheless, the risk level is lower than you might imagine. Carpenter bees rarely sting. Females have stingers but are docile. Therefore, they should leave you alone. As for males, they cannot sting. Another problem is that carpenter bees will attract woodpeckers.
