Our team of experts uses advanced Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques to safely and effectively remove these pests from your property. You won't need to worry about damaging your property, and you can rest easy that all best practices are followed.

How Southeast Termite & Pest Control Can Defend Against Carpenter Bees

Like many of the services offered by Southeast Termite & Pest Control, every carpenter bee control session begins with a free inspection. We want to make sure we understand the environment of your home and all surrounding attractant factors, as well as any underlying conditions that might be attracting the insects to your home or business. Our pest management professionals will evaluate your property for the signs and symptoms of infestation and pay close attention to problem areas like:

  • Vertical dime-sized holes in decking or eaves

  • Piles of sawdust underneath holes

  • Live carpenter bee activity

Next, it will be time to treat local carpenter bees with an initial control service. Southeast Termite & Pest Control prefers to apply our treatments in early spring, just before the pests become more active and overrun the yard. All vertical holes discovered in our inspection will be properly treated and sealed. We will also treat any exposed wood that may be at risk to reduce carpenter bee activity as the year continues.

We understand that carpenter bee control can be a long-term journey. That's why Southeast Termite & Pest Control offers 30-day follow-up services in the rare case of continued drilling or additional sawdust piles. We will return to re-treat the property at no additional cost to you, meaning you can rest easy if any bees return to the home.

Need something more preventative for your Knoxville property under construction? Southeast Termite & Pest Control provides carpenter bee pre-treatment services that can defend your new building on opening day and beyond.

Since all of our inspection processes are free of charge, you'll only pay for our services if and when you're ready for treatment.

We'll treat the outside of your Knoxville property against the activities of carpenter bees. First, we will locate, treat, and seal active carpenter bee holes to ensure new bees won't hatch later in the spring. Next, we'll provide products to untreated wood and other vulnerable areas of your home. If you need pre-construction carpenter bee treatments for your Knoxville property, don't hesitate to let our pest management professionals know.
