Bees and wasps may seem like nothing more than a minor inconvenience, but they can do serious damage to your home. Controlling wasps and bees is an important part of home maintenance that’s best left to a professional exterminator.
Damages Bees and Wasps can Cause
Carpenter bees can bore holes into your home in the fascia boards, siding or trim. To invade your house, they chew a half-inch entrance hole into the wood. Then, they begin boring deep tunnels. Carpenter bees can weaken the main support beams if left untreated. Honeybees build hives behind the walls. As the hive expands, the bees eat through the moisture barrier.
Wasps are more aggressive than bees. They are also able to sting repeatedly, so an encounter with a crowd of angry wasps can be very painful. If you’re allergic to wasp stings, you could die if you’re stung frequently. Wood-boring wasps don’t make nests inside wood like carpenter bees. Instead, they lay their eggs in holes in the wood. When the eggs hatch, the larvae chew their way through the wood and whatever else is between them and freedom. They can chew through drywall, flooring, carpet, ceilings or wood beams. The only things they can’t chew through are stone and ceramics.
