Carpenter Bee Burrows

Xylocopa genus


Holes. In wood


I understand that these are the burrows of the Carpenter Bees in a dying branch of a Bloodwood tree. The holes have become air vents or some part of the termite nest which has slowly overtaken the stricken bough. There is a termite peering out of the lower right hole. It is badly focussed but serves the purpose
