We are in the process of selling our 30 year old log home in eastern NC. The termite inspector came our and noted the Carpenter Bee holes in the house. We have tried to combat these pesty things for years with no luck. Well after his report we now have to have an inspection in addition to the home inspection that we already had to determine it’s ”Structual soundness”. How can you tell if these bees have caused it to be structually unsound or maybe I should say how will they determine it to

There is no way that Carpenter Bees would cause structural unsoundness. If however, they have drilled so many hole as to allow a lot of water to get in and cause log rot, then yes. But normally the holes are on the under side of the log and the rain cannot get into the logs anyway.
