I couldn’t tell at first whether we had honey bees or carpenter bees

We had a lot of bees flying here and there around our house and our garage this past year.

We are all scared of bees at our house.

None of us are allergic, but we are all terrified of any sort of flying insects like bees, wasps, yellow jackets, or hornets. Thank goodness we aren’t allergic, though. If we were allergic to bees, I don’t know if we would ever be brave enough to go outside. Last year, whenever we would go outside to sit on the deck or something, we would notice that there were a lot of bees flying around in the yard. We then noticed that there were bees flying into the eaves of the garage roof. Of course, we aren’t bee experts or anything like that. We are simply regular old people who are scared of bees. We thought that they might be either carpenter bees or honey bees. We were really hoping that they were honey bees instead of bees that would end up doing lots of damage to our house. Well, then we found out that we could end up with damage to the house from honey bees as easily as carpenter bees. That’s when we decided to go ahead and call one of the bee removal services here in town. They told us that we actually had carpenter bees and that it was a good thing that we had called when we did. Bee infestations that the ones that we had can really cause a lot of structural damage if you don’t catch them early.
