Guidance Note Carpenter Bees and how to control them

Carpenter bees are species in the genus Xylocopa that include some 500 bees and are found on every continent except Antarctica. They resemble bumblebees as they are similar in size, i.e. 12-25 mm long, but they are not bumblebees. They are mainly black in colour but can range from greenish-black to blueish black or purple in colour, with white or yellow markings on the top of their bodies.
