Carpenter Bees Boring Into Flow Hive


#1

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.


#2

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


#3

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.
