There are many species of wood boring beetles that attack wood and cause massive devastation to wood floors, furniture, beams and other wooden structures. The beetles lay their eggs into gaps in the wood which will hatch larvae who burrow deep into the wood creating a maze of tunnels weakening the woods integrity. This will eventually lead to total failure of the structure.
Carpenter bees are traditionally considered solitary bees, though some species have simple social nests in which mothers and daughters may cohabit. Examples of this type of social nesting can be seen in the species Xylocopa sulcatipes and Xylocopa nasalis. When females cohabit, a division of labour between them occurs sometimes. In this type of nesting, multiple females either share in the foraging and nest laying, or one female does all the foraging and nest laying, while the other females guard. Various pest control methods can be applied to combat and terminate the carpenter bee invading your home.
