It’s about time to install carpenter bee traps!

Spring is getting near and March is the ideal time you should have carpenter bee traps set to avoid damage to your home!


Carpenter bees are large black and yellow bees. They can frequently be seen in spring hovering around the eaves of your home or the underside of a deck or porch rail. The carpenter bee got its name from its habit of excavating tunnels in wood with its strong jaws. Carpenter bee holes are usually found on the underside of a board and about a 1/2 inch in diameter.  The tunnels typically run 6-7 inches but can exceed 1 foot! Wooden decks, overhangs and other exposed wood on houses are prime targets. Painted or treated wood are less preferred but they are by no means immune to an attack. Unpainted or stained cedar, cypress and redwood shingles and siding can also be attacked despite of their pest resistant reputations.


We have been helping our clients get rid of these pesky bee’s for years as they can cause massive amounts of damage if left untreated! We install traps and fill the existing bore holes with a putty like substance that kills the bee and keeps new ones from intruding while the traps keep new bee’s from creating new holes.
