Signs of Carpenter Bees in Tennessee
You can recognize a carpenter bee’s nest by the entrance holes in a wood structure. Specifically, the holes are ½-inch in diameter. In addition, you may spot trace signs of coarse sawdust. You may also hear them as they emit a sound that is similar to termites. Keep in mind that they do not eat wood. Most carpenter bees are solitary bugs. However, a mother and daughter bee may choose to build nests near each other.
They typically do not pose a risk to your home, but carpenter bees build tunnels into wood structures such as trees, decks and benches. As a result, they may damage some of your home’s exterior features.
Due to their quiet nature, they are unlikely to harm people. In fact, only those who are allergic to bee venom are at risk from carpenter bees. If you are allergic to bees, then be sure to obtain medical assistance after you are stung.
