This easy trap will help control carpenter bees that threaten your home without the need for baits or poisons, and it will not attract or harm any other kind of bee or insect. The trap will not lure carpenter bees in from a great distance, but will trap those that are intent on damaging the protected structure. Wood-boring female carpenter bees enter the pre-made holes, then they become dessicated by the sun in the capture bottle. The first day this trap was installed, it caught the four bees shown in the photo.
