Like all bees carpenter bees subsist off nectar and pollen. The head contains the mouth part and antennae. In the spring the carpenter bees mate build or expand their nests and lay their eggs.
Carpenter bees burrow in exposed wood to make nests. In other words if it has a furry butt its not a carpenter bee. Sand the wood surfaces smooth and treat the exposed wood with primer and two coats of paint.
Carpenter bees have compound eyes for seeing. Bumble bees typically nest within the ground while carpenter bees burrow into wood to lay their eggs. If you see something like coarse sawdust the nest is there only just above the frass.
Unlike termites and beetles carpenter ants do not eat wood. Even doors and window sills can fall victim to carpenter bees under the right circumstances. Carpenter bees use their mandibles which is part of their mouth part to chew through wood for their nests and change pollen into nectar.
Frass is the sawdust that falls off from the wood in which the hole has been drilled. If it is furry its a bumblebee but if its bare and shiny then its a carpenter bee. You can find carpenter bee nests in wooden decks fence posts or picnic tables.
