Reasons For Invasions
You’ll need to learn more about the causes of carpenter bees. Once you’ve done that, you can take steps to prevent them from reaching your property. Find out what attracts them to make your home less attractive. Remember that carpenter bees build nests on wood surfaces. They prefer weathered, untreated softwoods.

Carpenter Bee Dangers
Carpenter bees can be dangerous because they’re going to sting people and protect their nests. However, there are some misconceptions regarding carpenter bees. First, you should know that male carpenter bees do not have stingers. They cannot sting people, but they are aggressive. If you get too close to the nest, male carpenter bees are likely going to attack you and scare you away. Female carpenter bees sting. However, these pests are docile.
They tend to stay away from people unless someone gets too close. When a female carpenter bee approaches someone, there is a risk that the venom will lead to an allergic reaction. Medical attention is required immediately. Another issue is that carpenter bees are going to lure woodpeckers because they feed on larvae. Once woodpeckers reach your property, they’re going to cause extensive damage.
