Carpenter Bees---want them gone!

deemarie5500May 14, 2007

Hi everyone,

DH and I noticed big black bees heading for some eaves on the side of our home. There is a small roof near there and it shows sawdust. The house is stained (not painted), and DH had someone spray around that area a few years ago.

Anyone know what we can do ourselves to get rid of these rascals once and for all?

This is the outside wall to our bedroom and closet, and I'm terrified that they will find their way into our house.

YUCK!!!

Please help.

Thanks

Dee
