My roof was replaced last year. This year I have noticed about 10 carpenter bee holes on the fascia, above the windows where the wood has not been covered by vinyl. I am going to treat these professionally and then contain the problem in future years with a carpenter bee kit.
Once the bees have gone, I will fill the holes and paint. My neighbor (who had carpenter bees several years ago) is a perfectionist and views any infestation as a structural issue (he’s a carpenter by hobby). My question is…is it, given that this is the first, or possibly second, infestation? I have no intention of replacing the fascia but just performing annual maintenance i.e. a good coat of paint every year on the small wood surface and regular spraying.
Would you call out a carpenter bee issue? If so, at what level of infestation? One hole? Ten? The pistol shot look?
