SOMETHING BUGGING YOU?

Carpenter bees closely resemble bumblebees, but do not have the hair on their abdomen and are not considered social bees. Carpenter bees love to drill holes in wood that is unpainted and two inches or bigger in size. They do not eat the wood though, they just drill them a hole for a place to live. If you have a problem with carpenter bees, exterminators may be needed to help you get rid of the problem.
Carpenter bees are considered solitary bees because they do not live in the same colony type existence as other bees do. The make tunnels in the wood and separate chambers for each living unit. They have simple nests where a daughter and mother will cohabit together. The female of the species is the one you will normally see guarding the nest. The females have stingers while the males do not. Males will normally work gathering food and making more tunnels to use for eggs and food storage.
The young male and female bees will mate during the spring. They will then set out to begin to make more chambers for their eggs to hatch. Each chamber holds one egg and food for the larvae to eat. This food is a mixture of pollen and regurgitated nectar. The female can have up to 6-8 chambers for the larvae to hatch. Once the eggs hatch, the larvae develop quickly into full adults. Newly hatched adults emerge in August. They will then feed on nectar before returning to the tunnels to hibernate for winter.
Harmful to Wood
While one carpenter bee will not do any damage to wood, many of them can cause the wood to deteriorate. They will dig tunnels into the wood which in turn will cause the wood to lose its stability. Since they will only dig in untreated wood, you should consider painting any type of wood that is outdoors. This will help to prevent the carpenter bees from making any tunnels into it.
Getting Rid of Carpenter Bees
Getting rid of these carpenter bees is not hard; you will just need perseverance to keep up the fight. If you can you should call a bee exterminator in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania first. It will be much easier to let someone else handle the problem. They know exactly what to do to get rid of the bees and prevent them from coming back.
If you cannot call a bee exterminator, you can get rid of them yourself. The first thing you need to do is to purchase some insecticide dust or/and some wasp spray. It is best to do this at night to protect yourself from getting stung. Put some red cellophane tape over a flashlight. The bees will not be able to see the red light, but you should still be able to see the hole. Use something that will puff the dust up into the hole.
If you have to do this during the day, make sure to wear protective clothing to prevent any bee stings. Spray any bees flying around the hole with the wasp spray. Then proceed to inject the dust into the bee hole. If you are having a tough time getting rid of them, give Spectrum Pest Control Grove City Pennsylvania a call!
