The basic Carpenter Bee Kit contains a residual insecticide, FenvaStar EcoCap and D-Fense Dust with Clear Puffer Duster with its 5" extension
FenvaStar EcoCap is a great all around encapsulated insecticide. FenvaStar EcoCap will make 4 gallons of finished solution at the strongest strength (recommended strength for carpenter bees). It is a long lasting residual; will stay in place 2-3 months. The D-Fense Dust will last 6 months.
The Fenvastar concentrate is very repellent and should keep the bees from spending enough time on the surface to drill new holes. As the female bee passes through the dust, The D-Fense dust will kill it as the female bee is provisioning the egg cells in the tunnel. A followup treatment of the dust is advisable before sealing the holes in the fall.

How To Kill Carpenter Bees
If you do have an active carpenter bee & infestation, following these steps below would ensure success.
- Mix the FenvaStar EcoCap at 2 ounces per gallon of water and spray the areas where carpenter bees are boring or have bored in the past. The goal here is to use a spray pattern that clings to the surface. This will leave a repellant residue on the surface which will discourage the bees from drilling additional holes. Their holes are usually located on the underside of any wood surface including siding, soffits, overhangs, decks, fence posts, fascia boards and window frames. We recommend spraying twice during the spring at intervals of 3-4 weeks. For severe infestations of carpenter bees on cedar and log structures you may need to treat more frequently.
- Next fill the Clear Puffer duster about halfway with D Fense Dust and puff it into all accessible carpenter bee holes. Shake the duster vigorously and puff it 2 or 3 times into each hole. Holes that are too high to reach with the duster may have to be sprayed using the sprayer and the FenvaStar EcoCap. Setting the sprayer nozzle to a stream will allow it shoot much farther. Sometimes carpenter bee holes will be behind shutters, trim boards, gutters, etc. Dust or spray the area around their access point so that they have to crawl through some insecticide to get in or out.
- We recommend waiting until the fall to seal the holes. Waiting until the fall, will give any surviving eggs or adults time to hatch and leave. Use a sealant that can be painted over. Always read and follow the label instructions. Should you have any questions feel free to call us at 800-476-3368 or email us at E mail - Here
