|A hole started by a Carpenter bee (Xylocopa virginica).|
Since the last post, that bee had returned. Carpenter bees chew into wood about 1/2", then take a right turn and keep on chewing a tunnel with the grain of the wood for about 1 to 2 feet.One out of 4 legs of the pyramidal trellis is now tunneled out by that same little critter.

I was surprised at how easily that bee was scared away. Silly me.
