Small Carpenter Bee



A native Small Carpenter Bee pollinating an invasive Mock Strawberry (Potentilla Indica).


Lives in galleries (carved tunnels in wood, term only used for carpenter bees) searches for pollen.


May burrow into houses but the cheapest and best way to stop this is to hang a log especially with spots that have no bark. They prefer to use a log over housing wood but often have no logs to go to instead.
