This missive is about carpenters, bees not builders! Carpenter bees, also known as wood bees, come in two varieties…basically, large and small. You can tell them apart from the bumblebee because the bumblebee is hairier, especially in the abdomen area. Carpenter bees are solitary, and they don't create hives.
August is a particularly good time to rid your property of Carpenter bees. The female burrows into wood to create chambers in which to lay her eggs. It isn't easy to find one of these burrows, but if you know where to look, you can eliminate them. The important thing here is NOT to wait much longer or you will have to wait until spring.
