Signs of Carpenter Bee Infestations & Damage in
Rockville MD
The most common signs of a carpenter bee infestation are the round, smooth holes that carpenter bees bore into wood, hence the Carpenter Bee nickname “wood bees.” To identify if you have a carpenter bee infestation, inspect the exterior of your property in the springtime.  Look for carpenter bees flying or hovering in any particular area.  Then look close in that area for their tell-tale holes they bore in the wood.  Common places to look would be on wood decking, wood fences, wooden playsets.  Be aware that the hole you see from carpenter bees is just the surface damage.  If left untreated, carpenter bees will then continue to bore tunnels throughout the wood they have entered. 
Carpenter Bee Prevention Tips in
Rockville MD
Since carpenter bees prefer bare wood, painting and staining wood can sometimes help deter them. However, they will occasionally attack stained or painted wood. To avoid carpenter bees and prevent them from entering the home, seal cracks and crevices along the property’s foundation and walls with a silicone-based caulk, repair any tears in screens, and always keep doors closed.
How to Get Rid of Carpenter Bees in
Rockville MD
Getting rid of carpenter Bees is best performed by a professional carpenter bee exterminator.  Since carpenter bees can destroy wood if they are left to tunnel in the wood, it is very important to get the area treated right away to limit the damage.  A dust treatment is applied to the infestation site which will exterminate the carpenter bees and stop any further damage.  As always, the best way to protect your home is to have a quarterly pest control program.  Our quarterly program includes protection against carpenter bees, which is important because carpenter bees come back every spring.
What Do Carpenter Bees Look Like?
