Typically, carpenter bees attack unpainted items, such as roof eaves, railings, windowsills and doors. These bees drill a small round hole into the wood and then bores tunnels. Over time, there may be considerable structure damage

In this article, we discuss how to identify carpenter bees and control methods for carpenter bees.
