Tulsa OK Carpenter Bee Pest Control
There is nothing more dangerous than dealing with stinging insects and their nests. Stinging insects – hornets, carpenter bees, wasps, bumblebees, honeybees, – range from mild to severely aggressive. The carpenter bee is moderately aggressive, which intensifies when put under stress. One thing that can truthfully be said about carpenter bees is they apply a high level of creativity when nest-building. Instead of building a large paper-like nest that is visible from all angles, the carpenter bee bores circular holes in decaying wood for its nests. The bored hole will lead directly to the nest for easy access and exit.
Why Are Carpenter Bees Building Nests In My Trees?
Carpenter bees are drawn to rotting wood structures, such as standing and downed trees, deck railing, eaves, mailbox posts, and firewood piles. The insects bore 0.5-inch holes deep into the rotting wood to secure their young from predators, such as the woodpecker.
Once the nest is erected, it will become the go-to place for carpenter bees from here on out. Unfortunately, the male carpenter bee dies soon after mating. The female will until her eggs are deposited and hatched.
Are Carpenter Bees Dangerous?
Yes, there is no doubt about it, carpenter bees, both male and female, are extremely dangerous. While the female is the only carpenter bee with stinging capabilities, the male is still very dangerous. The only factor that prevents the female from utilizing her stinging capability more often is a timid demeanor. She is timid and hesitant to bite but will do whatever is necessary to protect your young.
Carpenter bee boring does significant damage to decaying wood structures. When you consider this level of damage, combined with that of the carpenter bee’s most notorious predator – woodpecker – the damage only worsens.
