Description: Carpenter bees are a type of bee that make their homes in wood. They don’t live in big groups like other bees and instead make their own homes by drilling tunnels into the wood. This can sometimes cause damage to the structure of the wood. However, carpenter bees are really good at pollinating and don’t usually harm humans.
