Carpenter Bee Removal in the Macon Area

Carpenter bee drilling holes in the railing of a wooden deck before a pest control technician treated the wood.

Carpenter bees are stocky, strong-flying bees that are closely related to bumble bees. In fact, they look very much alike except that the carpenter bee's abdomen looks shiny, but a bumble bee's has visible hairs.

Although they often fly around in a threatening manner, male carpenter bees have no stingers and are unable to sting.

Female carpenter bees have stingers, but almost never sting. They're too busy boring holes, which said habit is the reason for two other common names for carpenter bees: "wood bees" and "borer bees."

The reason carpenter bees bore holes and tunnels into wooden homes and other wooden items (law chairs, playground equipment, etc.) is to lay their eggs and raise their young. They don't actually eat the wood.

Over time, all this drilling can cause considerable damage, and the wax and fecal matter dripping from the holes is unsightly. Worse yet, because the bees may re-use the tunnels for several seasons, usually extending them each time, the damage to the wood can become quite extensive. It also tends to be expensive to repair because carpenter bees often choose wood that's way up high, making long ladders, scaffolding, or mechanical lifts necessary to repair the damage.

Carpenter Bee Removal and Control

If you have carpenter bees drilling into your home or something else that's valuable, however, then you'll need to get them treated. Once carpenter bees have taken a liking to your home, they don't go away. Female carpenter bees and their daughters often re-use the same nests, expanding them every time, year after year. So if you ignore a carpenter bee problem, it will only get worse.

No worries, though. Rid-A-Critter has the personnel, experience, and equipment to handle any carpenter bee job, no matter how big or how small. We not only take care of the existing bee problem and repair the carpenter bee damage, but we install screening to help prevent the bees from getting into hidden parts of your home where they can do damage unseen.

If you're located anywhere in the Macon area and have a carpenter bee problem, just give us a call for a professional consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
