“A Joy to Be Outside Again!”

“We had a problem with carpenter bees and moles in our yard before Termiguard. My stepuncle referred us and we don’t have problems with carpenter bees, and it’s a joy to be outside again with minimal mosquitos in our yard. These guys are fearless and our heroes when it comes to taking care of insects of all sorts. We randomly had ants in our kitchen, and they took care of those too. Very glad we have a service that is responsive and effective when we don’t want to mess with the creepy crawlies. Thanks Julian and Matt!”

How Do I Know If I Have Carpenter Bees?

If you are not sure you have a carpenter bee infestation, you should check for a few telltale signs.

Visible Holes

Carpenter bees create distinctive, smooth, round holes in wood as entrances to their nests. These holes are usually about 1/2 inch in diameter and are often found in less disturbed woods, such as those in eaves, decks, and railings​​.


As carpenter bees drill into wood to make their nests, they leave behind piles of sawdust, often found beneath the holes they’ve created. This sawdust, also known as frass, can cling to walls, windows, and other surfaces near the activity.

Buzzing Sounds

You might hear a faint buzzing or vibrating sound from the walls or wooden structures where the bees are boring holes. This sound is due to their activity inside the wood as they create their tunnels​.

Bee Activity

Unlike bumblebees, carpenter bees have shiny, smooth black abdomens and lack yellow markings. Observing their physical appearance can help confirm their identity. If you notice bees frequently near wooden structures or entering holes in wood, they are likely carpenter bees.

Wood Damage

Since carpenter bees can reinfest in the same areas year after year, cosmetic damage can build up and leave openings in the wood that can add to deterioration. And because carpenter bees deposit larvae in the hotels they create, often times wood peckers will create even more damage going after the larvae.

What are the Dangers of Carpenter Bees?

Carpenter bees are often mistaken as harmless visitors to the garden. However, they can pose a significant threat to residential properties, particularly when they infest in large numbers. 

The primary concern with carpenter bees is the structural damage they can cause over time. Initially, the damage may seem minimal, typically starting with a few noticeable holes. However, as the bees continue to tunnel and expand their nesting areas, the integrity of the wooden structures can be compromised. Repeated boring weakens wood and can lead to aesthetic damage, reducing the home’s visual appeal and potentially its market value.

Structural Damage & Repair Costs

Over time, the continued excavation by carpenter bees can weaken structural supports, necessitating costly repairs. Replacing beams, decking, and other wooden structures can be expensive, especially with extensive damage.

Attracting of Other Pests

The holes and tunnels made by carpenter bees can attract other wood-damaging pests like woodpeckers and certain types of beetles, further degrading the wood and complicating extermination efforts.

Decrease in Property Value

Visible signs of infestation, such as holes and wood stains from bee excrement, can put doubt in a potential buyer’s mind and affect the home’s resale value.

Potential for Recurrence

Carpenter bees are known to return to their previous nesting sites, and new generations often reuse and enlarge the old tunnels. A home can suffer recurring infestations without proper treatment, leading to ongoing maintenance and repair costs.
