Carpenter Bees

JamesY40(z7a)May 23, 2010

I have by default become a beekeeper. I have several carpenter bee nests in my porch swing structure. I don't plan to do anything about them since their destruction to my porch swing will be slow and gradual. By then, I'll be ready to replace it anyway. I seem to see about 4-5 new nests each year. I have noticed that they seem to be very territorial and will chase anything that approaches their nest, though they seem to be tolerant of humans. James

Pretty good overall description of carpenter bees (but keep an eye on how fast the wood destruction occurs).
