  • Have you noticed the presence of carpenter bees around your home lately?

    These beneficial pollinators can be intimidating.  They are relatively large in size and can cause considerable structural damage over time.

    Carp-enter bees spend the winter as adults in their gallery homes.  Now, they are starting new tunnels or expanding old ones in order to raise a brood of about six larvae during the summer.  Accumulations of sawdust may be the first sign that their work has begun.

Ok, maybe it’s not officially here according to the calendar; however it is here officially according to my standard definition of summer.
