Exterminating Carpenter Bees In Southern California Since 1994
Carpenter Bee Control Orange Co. & San Diego
Carpenter Bee Pest Control
The Carpenter Bee is a common pest in southern California where sources of dry timber are readily present. Carpenter bees are considered wood destroying organisms by the state of California, and require similar treatments as other wood destroying species of pests, such as termites and carpenter ants. To control Carpenter bees, we use low toxicity, non-repellent chemicals. In comparison to traditional pesticides, non-repellent treatments represent a major leap forward in control. Carpenter bees come in contact with the treatment, killing the active bees as well as their larva.
Our service begins with a licensed technician providing a full inspection of your residence and property. During the inspection, your Carpenter bee control technician will identify potential problem areas around your home or office. After the source of your problem areas have been identified, your technician will point out other potential Carpenter bee harborages and steps you can take to reduce future Carpenter bee infestations. Your technician will create a customized bee treatment plan for year-round protection, using the most effective and environmentally-conscious Carpenter bee control solutions.
Both the inside and outside of your home are always under warranty. We guarantee your satisfaction between regular scheduled maintenance. If at any time you find yourself in need of an additional treatment between regular scheduled services, call us and we will return to re-treat your home.
Quick Facts About Carpenter Bees
Unlike bumble bees, carpenter bees are solitary insects. Female carpenter bees will chew a tunnel into a piece of wood to build a nest gallery. The bits of wood she chews and deposits outside the nest are called frass. The male carpenter bee guards the outside of the nest. He does not have a stinger, but his constant buzzing causes concern for some.
Carpenter bees bore through soft woods to lay eggs and protect their larvae as they develop.
Carpenter bees do not pose a public health threat, but they can damage wood through their nest building.
Carpenter bees prefer bare wood, so painting and staining wood can sometimes deter them. However, they will sometimes attack stained or painted wood, so contact a pest control professional for assistance.

I began using the services of Griffin Pest Management in 2011. They have helped me get rid of fleas and bees, along with other pests. Today, Joe Wilburn returned to knock down spider webs and spray the exterior and garden. He was friendly, efficient, and professional. I would recommend his services and those of the company to other homeowners.

We recently had our large 2 story home in Cypress tented for termites by Griffin Pest Management. They arrived as scheduled, took great care to protect our rain gutters & satellite dish during the tenting process and their pricing was very competitive with other companies. We could not be more pleased with the service we received from Griffin. We also use Griffin for our bi-monthly pest control inside the house, the outside perimeter and yard. Our technician, Joe Wilburn, also takes extra care to remove any wasp nests from the eves, among other things. Griffin pest management is tops in my book. Their technicians are prompt, courteous and very thorough. We have nothing bad to say about the company, they are the best.
