We worry about the more noticeable wasps or bumble bees building their nests in our trees or under our overhangs, or giving us a painful sting. We take precautions against termites and carpenter ants, so they don’t destroy the wood in our homes. Yet, carpenter bees can be just as dreadful. Not only can they sting, but they can cause damage to our New England homes.

You see a bee and you immediately go into panic mode thinking you are going to be stung. You may grab a fly swatter or a can of bee and wasp spray and go to town trying to kill them off. While bees can sting, and that bee spray might work to eliminate them, it’s best to slow down and stay calm rather than running around swatting at it.
