Description

Large black bees hovering around and drilling holes into homes, out-buildings, wooden furniture and decks during May and June are carpenter bees. They resemble, and are often mistaken for bumble bees but the most apparent difference is that the carpenter bee has a black, shiny abdomen, compared to the hairy and often yellowish abdomen of the bumble bee.
