Carpenter Ants: These ants are among the largest found in the United States and are often black, but some species have a yellow or red color. Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t eat wood but remove the debris in order to make a nest inside the space. These ants create parent colonies that include a queen and workers, as well as satellite colonies that include workers, larvae, and pupae.
Carpenter Bees: There are two types of carpenter bees, large (Xylocopa) and small (Ceratina). These bees look similar to bumble bee but have a darker, black or blue color. These pests don’t feed on wood, but plant pollen and nectar. However, they can still do damage to doors, windowsills, railings, decks, and wood lawn furniture. Because these bees are important in the pollination process, professional pest control is necessary to ensure the proper method of removal.
