Nice job. Very clear. <br> <br>Fwiw, male carpenter bees don't have stingers...they're the aggressive ones that fly at you all the time. The females DO have a stinger, but the seem to be more concerned with finding a place to drill in (or reusing a previous year's hole) and lay eggs. <br> <br>They make a 1/2&quot; hole, so a little sevin dust and a 1/2&quot; dowel from the home center will take care of the larva as they hatch (dehydrates them) and plug the hole. Yeah, I have a log home too. :)
Thanks for the info. One question tho....what sized hole do you drill in the bottom??
Anywhere from 1/2 &quot; to 3/4 &quot; should do it !
This world already has a Bee shortage, may I suggest live capture.
NO!
Carpenter bees are neither endangered, nor are they serious pollinators. Nonetheless, I'm big softy, so I'll catch 'em and let them go...by the home of someone who annoys me. <br>
I knew someone had the truth! Thanks softy guy!
Beeeutiful!
Then what, will you come and drive them away about 100 miles ?
Big softies rule!
Beeeeee nice!
My traps are working! I made five of them! Less holes in my Log Home!
Damn, they are erasing some of my comments! It is pretty lame when you can not support a great instructable but the bleeding heart types can say anything and put your instructable down! The Gripeman UK, (kiteman) is behind this! They will probably delete this truthful comment too! Is this China or what ?
Don't people pay attention to the world around them? <br> <br>In the US, a third of the food supply, around 130 different crops, are directly dependent on the bee population. In other parts of the world, the proportion can be as high as 75%. <br> <br>Every single species of bee is under intense environmental pressure, many are endangered, both at local and global scales. <br> <br>As such, it is reckless to deliberately go out of one's way to inflict further damage on any species upon which human civilisation depends so closely. <br>
