John - While outside this morning, I noticed a carpenter bee working on boring a hole in some of the wood. Unfortunately, it wasn't the steps I first told you about (though they are definitely in the steps). It was in a piece of wood which is underneath our deck. The wood runs parallel to the deck and then below are wood beams for support. While the steps are very old (put in way before we moved in which was in 2005), but we added the enclosed deck about 2006 or 2007. So the wood I noticed this morning is only about 8 years old. I was too dumb at the time to ask about the right kind of wood to use. In order to replace this part it would be very very expensive I am sure. Any suggestions? We're not talking about a heavy infestation. I only saw one bee on that part, and I'm guessing since it was boring a hole it was a female; is that right? Thanks so much for any advice you can offer.
