What Does the Damage Caused by Carpenter Bees Look Like?


Carpenter bees are large bees that typically tunnel their way through unfinished wood to establish their nests. These bees, which resemble bumble bees in terms of their size, can cause damage to home exteriors, sheds, wooden decks, porch rails, and other wood structures. Professional pest control in Monmouth County can help you protect your home from these bees.

Damage from Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees usually don’t cause significant damage to wood. However, severe damage can end up occurring if you have a big infestation and these bees keep digging through the same holes over and over. Using the same holes can result in more serious damage and give home exteriors and other wood structures an unsightly appearance.

Signs of Carpenter Bee Problems

Holes in wood structures on the outside of your home can indicate that you have a carpenter bee problem. In some cases, these holes might have brownish-yellow stains around them, which occurs when carpenter bees get rid of waste. You might see these bees flying in and out of these holes during the warmer months of the year.

Keep in mind that these holes can let moisture in, which could attract carpenter ants, termites and other insect pests.

Don’t wait for carpenter bees to cause serious damage to your home or property. Contact Allison Pest Control for more information on our professional pest control in Monmouth County.
