Agreed but as you can see they can do some real damage in a very short period of time.

Gotta say those are some impressive holes for a bug. I don't think I could drill one that good.

I hate carpenter bees but find them fascinating at the same time, and the suckers are huge! They seem rather plentiful in this area for some reason. Never had a problem with them when I lived in Wisconsin.

Is it possible to buy a smaller amount than a gallon at 140 bucks a pop of Boron? That Abatron place only has that size.
I had them at one time. What i done is wait tell dark and get a dowel rod 3/8" and drive in hole and cut it flush. Put in every hole you find? I haven't see any around for a few yrs now. That done the trick with out any chem.

Well it's been a little while and after "nuking" them with hornet/wasp killer and caulking the hole shut I have not seen or heard from them.

Thanks again.

Carpenter bees tend to hover and watch you while bumble bees fly around as if they were drunk most of the time....must be all that nectar. I've been in well houses where the bees would hover about 3' from me just hangin' out. They never got closer and just seemed to be curious as hell as to why I was there.
