Carpenter Bee in USA
by AgileHProductions on YouTube

This video features the Eastern Carpenter Bee of USA and was produced by James Knott.

This American Eastern Carpenter bee looks very similar to the yellow and black Great Carpenter Bee species (Xylocopa) found in northern Australia.

These bees cut their nest burrows into soft timber. They can cause problems in the USA if they try to build nests in softwood American houses. However, in Australia they normally only nest in soft natural timbers such as the dead limbs of trees.

Carpenter bees are specialists at buzz pollination and are important pollinators for native bushland.
