Carpenter Bees Boring Into Flow Hive


Has anyone had a problem of Carpenter Bees drilling into the hives? I don’t have a problem currently, but there are many of those in my area.


I actually watched my hive fight off a carpenter bee that was attempting to get too close to the hive.


Carpenter bees prefer end grain. If the end grain is painted they tend to not try to bore into it. I have never had any issues with hives.
