Carpenter Bee in Alexandria VA

Carpenter bees are about 1 inch in length, and are often mistaken for bumble bees. A carpenter bee has shiny, hairless, black abdomen, while bumble bees are fuzzy all over.  Carpenter bees are also known as wood bees, since they burrow into and nest in wood. They don’t actually eat the wood, but the female bees chew through it to make nests. They make holes in the wood damaging your property. These holes can weaken the structure over a period of time. These bees do not live in colonies.
