Getting Rid of Carpenter Bees: Carpenter Bee Control

carpenter bee by a carpenter bee hole that can be treated with products from Men-Wood CoatingsCarpenter bee control is a three-fold process: prevention, identification, and treatment. Carpenter bees are large black and yellow bees that resemble harmless bumblebees.

The difference is that the carpenter bee will burrow through wood, using strong jaws, to create a nest inside your home. The damage caused may seem minimal at first, but over time a series of tunnels will severely weaken your structure.

Don’t be fooled into thinking your home is safe just because it has been stained or painted. Carpenter bee control is definitely helped by treating wood, but that is still no guarantee the wood won’t get attacked.

Still, it’s the right first step and you should take care that your wood is properly treated, and re-treated when necessary.

If you identify carpenter bee holes—typically round, and a half-inch in diameter—treat the entrance with an insecticide spray or dust. At Men-Wood Coatings we are proud to carry Tempo Dust and Demand CS, two of the best products on the market.

Holes might only look like they are a couple of inches deep and abandoned. But carpenter bees usually construct their tunnels with a series of right turns, so be careful.

Next, seal and caulk the tunnels. You don’t want your carpenter bees to return the next year and find an open network of tunnels ready for use.
