Abstract
The large wood-boring bees of the genus Xylocopa cause considerable damage to timber by their tunnelling. The adult bees have well developed mandibles and make tunnels in which they store food (pollen) for the larvae. The bees are particularly partial to making their tunnels in the rafters of buildings. Since these tunnels may be from three-quarters of an inch to an inch in diameter and up to 12 inches long, a considerable amount of damage is done.
