Carpenter bees are often confused with bumblebees. They are large and look scary and males they do not have a stinger. Females do have a stinger but will only sting if provoked.
Carpenter bees are non-social solitary insects. They tend to hibernate over winter months. In late summer they return to the same tunnels to hibernate for winter months. They reproduce slowly and can complete one generation per year. Tunnels are mainly prepared, and eggs laid in the Spring months.

CARPENTER BEE HABITAT
Found throughout the US, carpenter bees do not live in nests or colonies. They locate soft woods such as siding, eaves, window sills, doors, telephone poles, fence posts and decorative wood pieces for nests.
Unpainted and well weathered woods are more susceptible to infestation.
Female bees bore circular holes to lay eggs and protect their larvae as they develop.
PEST THREAT LEVEL
Carpenter bees are a serious property threat, as complex gallery systems can evolve if the holes are unnoticed. Male carpenter bees can be territorial, but they have no stinger. Female carpenter bees do have a potent stinger but will only sting if provoked.
