If you suspect carpenter bees, call for carpenter bee removal today!
When it comes to the wood that our homes were built from, many of us in humid climates fear the termite. These tiny and, let’s be honest, ugly insects chew and eat through the very wood that holds up our home or business structures. Once they have found a deliciously edible foundation, they multiply and cause substantial damage. Did you know that termites are not the only danger to foundations and the wooden structures of your property? Look out termites, there’s a new danger in town — enter the carpenter bee!
Here at Florida Bee Removal, we have seen our fair share of carpenter bees here in Lakeland, Florida. These little insects look remarkably similar to the honeybee with a furry body, but instead of being fuzzy all over, carpenter bees have smooth and shiny abdomens. While they do damage wooden structures like termites, they don’t actually eat the wood like the termites do. Instead, carpenter bees bore little holes into the wood and create series of tunnels in which to nest. All these holes and tunnels effectively weaken any piece of wood that is afflicted with them, making them especially dangerous to the foundations of any structure.
Carpenter bees don’t limit themselves to the foundation, although that is the dark and quiet ideal place. They can also make their homes and do their damage inside walls, attics, rooftops, and the eaves of buildings. If you see several bees swarming or entering these areas, we want you to call us right away for carpenter bee removal! We have the skills for effective carpenter bee removal to keep these pests from doing any further damage.
