    ILLEGAL USE OF FIREWORKS

    Fireworks are popular on the Fourth of July and other holidays. They are also extremely dangerous in the hands of amateurs and children. Residents of Sugar Land have opportunities to attend dramatic fireworks displays put on by trained professionals. Scheduled displays must meet strict guidelines and follow fire codes and local ordinances that provide for a number of life-safety and property precautions.

    National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reports reveal that fireworks cause tens of millions of dollars in property damage each year. Fireworks are also responsible for thousands of injuries and even deaths. According to the NFPA, actual injury numbers are higher because many injuries are treated at home or in a doctor's office. Injuries from fireworks range from burns, abrasions, lacerations and eye injuries to amputations, particularly of hands and fingers. While the majority of injuries (50 percent) were to a person under the age of 20, children between the ages of 10 and 14 were at the greatest risk. Did you know that "Sparklers" could be as hot as 1,200 to 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit at the tip?

    To report the illegal use of fireworks in Sugar Land, call (281) 275-2525.



    CARPENTER BEES

    We received a call from a Barrington Place resident who reported he was having problems with carpenter bees at his residence. In case others are having similar problems, we offer some information on the subject.

    Carpenter bees are so named because of their preference for nesting in pith (the soft tissue in some plant stems) and wood. Common throughout Texas, carpenter bees sometimes damage structural wood. To control these bees, it is important to be able to identify them and to know their biology and behavior. Steps for effective control include preventing damage, locating and applying insecticides to the nesting sites, and taking remedial action to prevent further damage.

    Thirty-five species of carpenter bees can be found throughout the United States and Canada. Seven species in this group nest in sound wood and can damage structures. Although softwood (such as redwood, cypress, cedar and pine) is preferred, they can attack hardwood after it has been softened by decay or exposure to the elements. Carpenter bees are usually shiny or metallic blue-black with a greenish to purplish sheen. Some male carpenter bees have yellow areas on the face, and males of a few species may be partially to entirely buff or pale yellow. Xylocopa carpenter bees closely resemble bumblebees in size and color. The bodies of both types of bees are mostly covered with yellow, orange or black hairs. Carpenter bees can be distinguished, however, by the lack of hairs on the top of the abdomen. On the rear legs, female carpenter bees have a dense brush of hairs, whereas female bumble-bees have large pollen baskets. Carpenter bee nests are easily distinguished from those of other wood-boring insects. Nest entrances are almost perfectly round and, for the common carpenter bee, about 1/2 inch in diameter. No other insect produces as large an opening with a perfectly round shape.

    Carpenter bees spend the winter in nest tunnels built by previous generations. Cold weather causes many bees to die over the winter. Surviving adults usually emerge in April and May and seek nectar for food. Within a few weeks after emergence, the adult bees mate and begin building their nests. During this time, carpenter bees are most active and noticeable. Females are often seen hovering below a nest entrance, waiting for a mate. Male carpenter bees may fly aggressively at and around people as part of their territorial behavior. This activity is harmless, however, as males cannot sting. Females can inflict a painful sting, but do so only if handled or provoked.

    Fertilized female bees generally prepare the nest site. They may clean out and reuse an old tunnel with no additional boring; lengthen an old gallery; create a new tunnel from an existing entrance used by several bees; or bore an entirely new gallery.

    When control is necessary, find and treat all the nest entrances. Because piles of sawdust are usually located directly below active nests, look for the perfectly round, dime-sized entry holes above sawdust piles. Or, watch to see where the bees disappear into the wood. Remove the damaged wood as needed and replace it with pressure-treated or painted wood. Plug newly excavated nests with hardwood doweling or plastic wood to deter additional carpenter bee activity and to protect the wood from further deterioration. For established nests, apply insecticide dusts or sprays into each entrance hole and to the wood surface for several inches around the hole. Insecticide dusts containing carbaryl (SevinŽ), pyrethrins, cyfluthrin, or deltamethrin* can be blown into nest entrances with an insecticide duster or squeeze bottle.
