Did You Know?

carpenter bee

While walking around the Industrial Site you may see small holes that have been drilled into the wooden siding. Although these holes may look man-made, they are actually carved out by Eastern carpenter bees, which use them as a safe place to lay their eggs. You may also come across long, drilled out lines in the wood, a sign that woodpeckers have been searching for the carpenter bee larva.
