Carpenter Bees

Carpenter bees are mostly black, with males having a white or yellow face. You can also identify these pests by the round, smooth holes they create in pieces of wood. Finding their nest’s entrance holes on your home’s exterior or wooden structures in your yard indicates that these pests are present.
