When you think of pests in your home, you may think of mice, termites, ants, or spiders. You may think of bees as more of an outdoor pest that doesn’t really affect your home, but that’s not the case when it comes to carpenter bees.
Female carpenter bees chew wood, creating tunnels. Many prefer the wood on houses, so it’s not uncommon for homeowners to find that bees are creating holes in various parts of the home.
Many people are scared of bees and don’t want them around their property. While carpenter bees don’t bite, the females will sting if provoked. Carpenter bees are pollinators for certain flowers, so while they may have a bad reputation, they are helpful—just not in your home. That’s why you need to contact American Pest Control for carpenter bee removal at the first sign of infestation.
