Hi John - We have noticed a swarm of carpenter bees mostly around our deck stairs. On close inspection I actually saw one drilling a hole on one of the steps (the underneath part). I did read your information on carpenter bees. The steps are old, and we have thought about replacing them. At this point, though, I am wondering if we should treat for the bees first or just replace the steps. Can you give me your thoughts on this? If we need to deal with the bees first, I am thinking of getting an exterminator. Of course, if we have the steps replaced, I'll make the handyman person aware of the problem. It sounds like if we treat the wood properly with primer, paint, etc. that might help a lot. I did see where all parts of the steps would need painting, including the underside, etc. Thanks for your help!
