Causes and Solutions Carpenter Bee Infestations
Carpenter bees like to nest in wood that is unpainted or weathered woodsuch as decks or porches. Carpenter bees only use the wood to make their nest and not as a source of food. Carpenter bees often come back to the same nest year after year increasing damage to your property. Treating carpenter bees is difficult because you need to make sure you have treated all the tunnels or they will return the following year. You also face the risk of being stung and having an allergic reaction. You should contact Ameri Care Services as soon as you see signs of carpenter bees at your home or business. Painting or staining wood around your home or business is the most effective way to prevent carpenter bees from nesting on your property. While carpenter bees can make their nests in treated wood they prefer untreated wood.
