We had a carpenter been that drilled a hole in our popular tree.He was great. Nearly everytime we came near the tree he visited with us.  
We had to have the tree taken out last year. He is missed!

I am teaching a bee unit to my 3rd graders. We've learned about honeybees and visited a hive. I'd like the children to be able to support some of our native pollinators at home. Can we build nests for Carpenter Bees? I was thinking of hanging pieces of wood from backyard trees. Is there a preferred variety of wood, location of the nest, or any other information that would help us?

Thank you. I’m new to the world of bees. We have quite a few carpenter bees and I love listening to them buzz around. Glad that - like myself - their benefits outweigh their pesky side.

We have a thriving bush covered with small, elongated orange flowers. On warm, sunny days it attracts many black bees. They are very large. What could they bee?
