Carpenter bees look fairly innocent when you compare them to other wasp species. This is due to the fact that many people mistake them for bumblebees. They are solitary bee species mostly found in regions where there is an abundance of wood. The unique thing about them is that they create individual cells by making holes in untreated wood. These nests resemble perfect circular holes that are 16mm in diameter. As with carpenter ants, they are often mistaken to eat the wood in order to create the holes.
