Remove Bees from Your Property | Columbus, OH Carpenter Bee Removal
CALL: (844) 544-9453
Carpenter bees are large insects which resemble bumblebees (a common misconception) and are commonly found on Columbus, OH homeowners’ properties during the month of May. They mostly black, shiny, and without hair. The bees wake up during the early spring months and begin to look for locations to build their nest areas. The female carpenter bees use their strong mandibles (jaw muscle) to chew holes in wood. Females are the only carpenter bees capable of stinging. The bees use these entry holes to create a larger, interconnected series of tunnels which can be used to safely store eggs. Carpenter bee removal is usually a difficult process which can take time to fully execute. You can learn more about the background and behavior of carpenter bees at this Ohioline webpage.
Carpenter bees are a major nuisance to Columbus residents during the spring months. This is especially true if you have had issues with them in recent years. Understandably, creating a brand new nest would take a lot of time and energy. To avoid this, carpenter bees often reuse tunnels they created before. They may stay in the same area for the duration of their lifespan if the resources allow it.
How Do I Know If I Have Carpenter Bees on My Property?
If you’re like most people, you would have no way of knowing what kind of bee you’re dealing with off the top of your head. To help you out, I will outline some key factors that indicate you have a carpenter bee problem:
- Large numbers of bees hovering around a nest area
- Hostile bee activity (i.e. fighting off encroaching insects)
- Round entry holes in soft wood
- Tunnels within wood
Carpenter bees can be extremely territorial and their stings very painful. Not only are they a serious annoyance, they may jeopardize any structure that has a soft, wood foundation. Although a single bee won’t do much damage, the tunneling potential of a colony over time can prove disastrous. If it seems like the bees never leave, it’s because they don’t! Therefore, it is in your best interest to remove them as soon as you notice any carpenter bee activity on your property.
