- Can damage wood and structural members. Carpenter bees are known to drill 1⁄2 inch holes in wood facial and other wood members. Some damage is cosmetic, but many times structures get compromise by the “drilling” of the bees.
- Deface and Damage. Significant damage to structural beams and supporting member can be done by bees and by birds searching for bee larva meals.
- Create hazardous conditions. The female carpenter bee stings and if a person is allergic it can cause a lot of problems.
- Become a nuisance. As the populations increase, the bees are a nuisance to families, customers, and or pets.
