Carpenter Bee Trap (Best Bee Trap- Carpenter Bee Solution)

Trap carpenter bees with this carpenter bee trap by Best Bee Traps. This carpenter bee trap is made of durable materials and imitates the natural nest of a carpenter bee. This carpenter bee trap is one of the best designs on the market due to its patented design. It mimics a carpenter bee nest with its angled entrance holes. It is shaped like a funnel to increase the amount of light in the wooden chamber and prevents the carpenter bees from escaping.

How Carpenter Bee Traps Works

The bee enters the hole, and then gets trapped in the wooden chamber, then drops into the bottle under the chamber. Once the carpenter bees start filling the trap, their pheromone will start attracting other carpenter bees. This particular carpenter bee trap is collected in a permanent receptacle with a cord attached to the bottom lid. Simply open the lid by pulling the cord, when the bottle is full.

Trap Placement

If you have a carpenter bee infestation, place the traps where the carpenter bees are active. Place the trap directly over the existing carpenter bee holes. We suggest using a long term residual insecticide, like Cyzmic CS or Cyper WSP, sprayed on the surfaces where they are burrowing, steering the bees away from your structure.

If you don't have carpenter bees yet, place traps at corners and peaks of the structures, preferably on the sunniest side of your home.

Benefits and Features

  • Mimics the natural nest of a carpenter bee
  • Unique funnel system reduces clogging and prevents carpenter bees from escaping.
  • Collects carpenter bees faster than other traps
  • Made from durable materials for all weather conditions
  • Each trap includes a hook, washer and string to make emptying the trap as simple as pulling the string.
  • Free of toxic chemicals
  • Low maintenance - no bottles or jars to replace
  • Recommended: one trap per 15 ft. radius of coverage

July in Virginia
I'm starting w/2 traps to see if they work. We built a custom 2nd home in the Mountains of VA - it is covered w/painted hardiplank siding, porch & stairs are Trex, trim & railings are vinyl.......and yes we are having a problem w/Carpenter bee's! problem is we are only out there on the occasional weekend & we can't see actual holes because they are squeezing in under the vinyl. It took me a yr to convince my husband they were not bumblebees. Went out there a week ago and found a dead carpenter bee on the front steps - put it in my trap. Not sure if we've missed the season but will leave them up til winter. Can't say if they work but I have high hopes & they look cute!

Efficient trap!
Great product. Hung it near where I’ve seen the bees digging in the porch, and had two caught within the day. Definitely worth it!

I was skeptical, but it worked! We had problems for several years with carpenter need and had tried several sprays, none of which worked. In less than a week out problem was solved!

Wish I bought this years ago!
I've had carpenter bees boring themselves into the kids swing set/fort for a few years. I'd plug the holes with wood putty and spray with hornet spray to no avail. I used an old tennis racquet to get most of them, but they'd come back. Kids would use the swing less. I saw this tarp and was skeptical that something so small and simple would work, but I am happy to report that it is liked the pied piper for carpenter bees. I hung it from the roof of the fort and waited about 2 weeks. There were already 5-6 bees in there. I've already emptied it twice this season, each time with 15-20 bees in it. Best $25 I've ever spent on pest control. The kicker is that it looks great - solid wood construction.

I would highly recommend this product. It did exactly what it said it would do.
We had a severe carpenter bee issue. We couldn't even be in the area where their nests were,(back deck and outdoor shower). I bought two of the traps and within a week the one trap had about 20 bees in it. The second one we have moved a few times without any luck, but it seems that the bees have left our yard possibly due to all the dead ones from the other trap.

Love it!
It took a couple of days but once we got the 1st bee the others came. We purchased 3 traps which we placed on different sides of the deck. One side had a lot more activity than the others, they seem to like the sunny side best. We caught 12 bees in one trap and 2 in each of the others. We haven't seen a new bee in days. Love these traps!

I am delighted witih your product!
When I found your product on line, it seemed like a good idea--but also gave it only a 50/50 chance of working, considering how simple the idea was--thinking I certainly would have heard about this before had your claims been true......
And I have been so surprised how well it has worked for me--that we've been singing its praises to everyone! The first day we had TEN big carpenter bees in the first plastic container. I think we happened to put it in the perfect spot--near their active wood holes that had wood shavings beneath the holes. The second container was placed in a less active area, and no bees were collected in it until we moved it to a more active site.
When we left our home last week, there was still one active bee that seemed to "catch on" what was happening, but we hopefully left our home with containers left to continue to entice him home to his deceased comrades. This is a great way to rid yourselves of carpenter bees. No toxic complications for other animals or birds. I am delighted witih your product! C.D.

it works
i bought 2 of them. at first it didn't seem to work. i don't know maybe
they had to get use to them being there. i went to vegas for four days
and when i got home they were almost half full. the past couple of
days i haven't seen any of them fling around. i'll probably get a couple
more at the beginning of next season.

The Carpenter Bee that couldn't
We had carpenter bee's attacking a near by garage drilling a clean 3/8 inch holes around the roof line. So we decided to take action. I ordered two of these traps, hung one by the garage and one by the house, the garage is only 20' away from the house. The bee's were starting to eye up the house. Note it was raining for day's when I received the order so the bee's were not in sight. No action at the traps. But once the sun came out it only took a few day's and I trapped 4 bee's at the house trap. Nice... I believe the message went out and they left the site.
This is a great trap. It worked great for me.. Thank You.

Very good product. Well worth the money.
I’m very satisfied with this product. I bought three of them and will most likely buy two more next spring when the bees become a problem again.
One of them caught enough bees to fill half the cylinder. Emptied it and it filled a quarter of it. Emptied it and there’s one more bee in it right now. Another one filled about a third of the cylinder. Emptied it and two more are in it right now. The third one caught none in two different locations. I’m leaving it at the present location and will see what happens.
Most of the bees seem to be gone for the season now. Either that or I’ve trapped them all. I’m curious to see what happens next Spring since I’ll have them installed earlier.
I’m very satisfied so far.

Review by Theresa / (Posted on 5/24/2018)
Love it!
This trap works really well. I was able to completely get rid of carpenter bees within a week. I had noticed several holes underneath my deck when the weather got warmer this spring. I also noticed bees going in and out of them. They are really quick in drilling the holes and if you stand there and watch for a little while you will see sawdust coming out of their holes.They also hovered over my deck and made it impossible to sit out and enjoy the warm, nice weather. I hung up the trap from the deck and filled in all the holes with putty. If there was a bee inside the hole they would push the putty out but if no bees happened to be in the hole they weren't able to go back in. For those holes that had bees in them, I soaked cotton balls with alcohol and stuffed it into the hole. In the meantime, the bees started using the trap as their "home". It captured about 15 bees and I haven't seen one for days now.

Works amazingly well
I bought this last summer when I noticed carpenter bees burrowing into my deck. It took a while before I captured the 1st one, but once I caught one, I caught several more, and it ended the problem for the summer. With the new year starting, I saw one or two hanging around the deck again, so I thought it was time to put this back out. In just over a week, I'd caught a dozen! After dumping these, another week has the bottle full again. Very effective and easy to use!

These traps REALLY work!
After years of having my house eaten by bees, I was getting frustrated. Nothing I did worked, and even professionals shrugged their shoulders and said the bees would keep coming back every year. I bought one of these traps a few years ago and I was ecstatic when the bees just started dropping in. The trap worked well, but it had a few problems with the design - the container would fill with water over time, and I had to get a ladder to empty out water and bees. So it limited the places I was willing to place the traps, and thus limited its effectiveness. They fixed both problems with this new design! I now have two more of these high up on my roof line and all I have to do is pull a string to drop out a pile of bees. Woo Hoo! I love this product!

Excellent product
I have a cedar sided home and cedar deck and a pole barn all of which the carpenter bees were really working on. I bought 4 of these traps, I put one under the deck, one behind the house and two at the barn. I put the ones at the barn up first and by the time I had all four up one was caught at the barn. Within one week every one had bees in them and now the one behind the house has about 7-10 in it, the one under the deck has 10-15 in it and both at the barn have 20 or more in them. I've had professional pest control companies spray for them with limited success. I've not seen ANY bees after having them up for two weeks. I'm MORE than satisfied. Don Hillsman, Missouri.

Review by Don / (Posted on 8/27/2017)
These work, but not so well that the traps alone will do what i had hoped.
I put up 4 of these about 3 weeks ago. Two of them caught 5 or 6 bees each, the other two have only one each. The slower traps are probably not in optimum locations. I still have bees attacking the house, and it does not appear the traps alone are going to do the trick, so i will be getting the spray.

MY EXPERIENCE
Carpenter Bees been puting holes in my large cedar deck for many yrs and saw one or 2 at most when close to that area. I hung trap upon receipt 3 mos ago. Caught 1 bee first day & 2nd on 3rd day after putting small sticks in many holes & left them in trap. The remains of the 2 have turned into gook. I have not seen any more bees since but wife says she saw one a few days ago. I'm not sure if only 2 existed? Anyone have this experience?

Previously Reviewed, just another remark.
The trap didn't work for us as I stated earlier. I didn't mention that the quality is sturdy. For the materials used, the price of $24.50 is too much, in my opinion. I feel $15.00 might be more in line.

We are under control!
Put traps up about 2 weeks ago...but no notches on the gun. Let me explain. A few days after hanging them my yard help was here. He guessed what they were for and realized that he had forgotten to tell me that a week before I hung them he had pumped your DeltaDust insecticide into all the open holes. The dust evidently did it's job. Will leave the traps up though just to see if they catch any newcomers.

I bought 2. One for front and one for back of house. Caught 1st one in 2 hours! Probably have 30 dead now. Neighbor borrowed and got same results. Ordering 2 today for people who heard me say how great they are. Now, here is (hopefully) a good tip. I just read that if you have wasps, put a little sweet soda in bottle along with 5 drops of dish washing liquid. Says takes care of wasps. I am going to try this as I have wasps!

Perfection
These traps work perfectly. Sure it's a bit icky that the bees slowly die inside but the pheromones they release attract many more bees to the trap. A great way to limit the amount of pesticides you have to apply to keep the bees in check.

Not a gimmick- It works!
I had little faith this trap would work, but our bee problem has been so bad this year, I thought the ~$25 was worth the risk. I hung it as directed up near the gable where they're active. Within 3 days there 5 bodies in the jar, and a live one trying to escape. It's a convenient 24/7 control method.

Carpenter Beesness
I took the time to write this review because I am so impressed with these traps. I basically had a whole squadron of carpenter bees hovering around my front porch. I started to spend $200. on a pest control service but several people told me I'd be wasting my money. I found this business on the internet, read the good reviews and thought I'd take a chance and ordered two traps. It wasn't long before bees were checking in but not checking out. This trap went a long way toward eliminating my problem. I used a tennis racket on the rest of them. The are gone. This is a great product which I highly recommend to those with carpenter bee issues.

Love the little trap. The first bee was trapped within 24 hours and now, three weeks later, the container is almost full. The carpenter bee population has dropped so quickly that I am hard pressed to find any around the whole house.

I just loved the carpenter bee traps. They were easy to assemble and install there have been around 30 bees caught in the traps so far after being up for only 3 weeks! These are great chemical free products and the price was very reasonable. My landlord also purchased your dust for the holes and the plugs. The pesticide appears to have killed all of the bees in the holes. I believe the conjunction of both products made our effort a total win!
