Carpenter bees are also known as wood eaters because they cause millions of dollars in damage to residential and commercial buildings throughout Central Florida each year. Male carpenter bees do not sting, but they are large and aggressive and often found hovering around the nests. Female carpenter bees sting when agitated, which causes redness, pain, and swelling.
You can tell you have carpenter bees when you see:
- Large black bees flying around outside your home
- Holes bored into wood outside your home
- A yellow color at the entrances of the holes
- Sawdust on the ground under the holes
Carpenter bees don’t feed on wood but dig tunnels in wood to create their homes, which damages the structural integrity of the wood. The female digs a series of small cells around a ball of pollen to feed their larvae. The entrances to the tunnels are perfectly round small holes that are bored into soft wood that is unpainted and untreated. Due to the structural damage caused by carpenter bees, it is important to get rid of them as soon as possible.
Wasps & Hornets
Yellow jackets are a type of wasp that has a distinctive yellow coloring and aggressive behavior. Florida is home to two species: the eastern yellow jacket and the southern yellow jacket. Their presence can be beneficial because they prey on ants and other insects. However, colonies can grow extremely large and their stings can be dangerous, or even deadly, for some people.
Yellow jackets nest above and below ground and may be found near or in:
- Outdoor garbage cans
- Holes in the ground made by rodents
Hornets build their nests above ground and become aggressive when disturbed. While honeybees can sting only once, hornets can keep stinging. This can become extremely dangerous when their nests are located in areas that are frequently occupied by people. Regardless of the species that has invaded your space, we offer cost-effective and reliable bee and wasp control in Auburndale.
