Concerned about carpenter bees and wood trim I already bought for my house
I really liked the look of Cypress so I bought it as trim for my whole house before I found out carpenter bees were going to be a problem
from my understanding what I read online the bees only like to dig in wood that’s 1 to 2 inches thick or more while my cypress trim I bought is only .75 inches thick, could this deter them from it? Will the cypress itself deter them?
if they do dig through the cypress and get through it will they continue to dig into my house framing that’s behind the cypress or do they tend to stay in the same wood they started in? Like would they get in my roof trusses behind the cypress?
