They use wood bits to form partitions Between the cells in the nest. A few species bore holes in wood Dwellings.  In the United States, there are two eastern species, Xylocopa virginica, and Xylocopa micans, and three other species are primarily western in That distribution, varipuncta Xylocopa, Xylocopa Xylocopa californica and tabaniformis orpifex.

Males of some species have a white or yellow face, where the Females do not; males also have much larger eyes Often than the Females, the which relates to Their mating behavior. Male bees are Often seen hovering near nests, and will approach nearby animals.  Female carpenter bees are capable of stinging, but They are docile and rarely sting unless caught in the hand or otherwise directly Provoked.
