Carpenter Bees

  • Male carpenter bees can be identified by a bright yellow spot on the head
  • Males are aggressive but harmless and cannot sting
  • Females can sting if attacked


  • Carpenter bees bore holes into wood to create a tunnel where they can raise their young
  • They do not live in nests or colonies like yellow jackets and honey bees
  • Entry holes into the wood are usually located in the well-lit and sheltered areas, such as headers, roof eaves, porch ceilings, fascia boards, decks, doors, and window sills
  • Soft wood, such as California redwood, cedar, white pine, and poplar is preferred for nest building
