Carpenter bees are species in the genus Xylocopa of the subfamily Xylocopinae. The genus includes some bees in 31 subgenera.

The common name "carpenter bee" derives from their nesting behavior; nearly all species burrow into hard plant material such as dead wood or bamboo.

Some male carpenter bees (Xylocopa spp.) possess massive propodeal exocrine glands that produce copious quantities of multicomponent blends of lipoidal material.

Some of these compounds are volatile, producing a “flowery” aroma that can be easily detected several meters downwind from a territorial male. Chemical characterization of these secretions Cited by:. Males ofXylocopa micans employ two mating systems in south-central Texas.

Females form nests by excavation with their mandibles, often in dead or soft wood. X. pubescens is commonly found in areas extending from India to Northeast and West Africa.
