You may encounter a handful of stinging insects in the future. Although there are others, one of the most common stinging insects in our area is the carpenter bee. As the name implies, carpenter bees are going to sting. The good news is that carpenter bees are less aggressive than most stinging insects. They usually won’t sting people unless someone gets too close to their nest. Carpenter bees can grow over an inch and a half. You can determine the gender by looking at its color. If it is black, it is a female. Black and orange colors mean it is a male.
Reasons For Carpenter Bee Invasions
Carpenter bees approach homes because they’re looking for places to build nests. They are attracted to softwoods that haven’t been protected with a stain or paint. When they approach your property and find untreated softwoods, they’re going to build nests in the wood. Paint or stain the softwoods around your home to avoid potential problems.
Are these Pests Dangerous?
Carpenter bees can sting people from time to time, but they’re not as aggressive as other stinging insects. Female carpenter bees can sting since they have a stinger. Nevertheless, they tend to be docile when compared to male carpenter bees. You’ll find that male carpenter bees will aggressively defend their nests, but they cannot sting.
These pests are destructive though. When they build tunnels, they’re going to leave their larvae inside. Unfortunately, this will attract woodpeckers and lead to more destruction.
