Carpenter bees are large and round like the bumblebee, but are totally black with a bald upper abdomen. They are solitary insects and build nests in tunnels in dead trees or wooden buildings. They can cause some damage to poles or other structures. They are not likely to sting unless handled, and have a surprisingly mild sting. Some people have been known to keep them as pets.
Such spectacular color!!
