Bee Observant of bee damage (if you see carpenter bees they are probably doing damage to your home)

Carpenter bees can do a lot of damage if the proper signs are not looked for each year. Holes that are approximately 1/2 inch are these early signs you should look for. These bees tend to work in groups rather than one at a time. If a wood pecker knows that a bee larva is in a fascia board, they will try to burrow it out.

Key Takeaways:

  • The best measure you can take to reduce bee damage to your home is to keep it well painted as bees prefer natural wood.
  • Look for smooth holes about ½ inch in diameter on the under side of your fascia boards or soffit.
  • If you find holes in your home you should act promptly to limit the damage.
