Have you at any point seen a major, fluffy dark or darker honey bee flying around your yard? The honey bees you are seeing are most likely woodworker honey bees. Once in a while people erroneously call these “Honey bees”. A genuine Honey bee is an alternate animal.
Craftsman honey bees are single honey bees that get their name from their propensity for drilling openings into wood to make a pit. This hole is the place the female will lay her eggs. Frequently the proof of their essence is a heap of “sawdust-like” shavings.
In the event that you discover this frass and need to examine further, you just need to do one thing…look up. On the off chance that you look carefully, you’ll likely discover an opening around 1/2 inch in breadth (somewhat bigger than a pencil). This gap will be in a bit of wood with practically zero complete on it.
Woodworker honey bees can look, and once in a while demonstration threatening, yet they are genuinely innocuous. In spite of the fact that the female has a stinger, she infrequently utilizes it. Also, the male, who may act extremely forceful, has no stinger by any means. He’s all feign!
Woodworker honey bees can do harm if left alone for quite a while. However, we have seen not very many instances of auxiliary harm that required repairs. There are two purposes behind this: To begin with, the honey bees more often than not are absent in huge numbers; and second, the honey bee lean towards incomplete wood. A large portion of the harm we have seen has been in wall or in heaps of kindling.
At the point when woodworker honey bees harm the wood siding or trim of a house or other structure, it is in all probability since that structure has an old complete, or no complete by any stretch of the imagination. To repulse them and secure the structure, a basic layer of paint, varnish or other outside quality complete will for the most part carry out the activity. In the event that you’ve attempted this are as yet having issues, call us. We’ll be glad to examine it with you and, if the building is inside our ordinary administration zone, we’ll most likely make a trip to investigate.
