Carpenter Bee Kit Pro

The Carpenter Bee Kit Pro has Cyzmic CS Insecticide, Tempo Dust 1%, and the B&G Bulb Dust-R Duster M1150 (with curved tip)

  1. Cyzmic CS is an encapsulated broad-spectrum insecticide concentrate. Cyzmic CS (8 oz) will yield 10-40 gallons of finished solution. The dilution rate is dependent on the target insect. For carpenter bees, mix 0.4 oz per gallon (12 ml). It remains in place for 2-3 months. You can use Cyzmic CS to control a variety of pests.
  2. Tempo Dust 1%is an all-around pesticide in a dust form. Tempo Dust will last six months and is the best dust for flying insects. This dust is very effective on stinging insects such as hornets, wasps, and bees, due to its particle size.
  3. B&G Bulb Dust-R Duster M1150 is a heavy-duty bulb duster that holds 14 oz of dust or fine granules. It has extension tubes and a curved tip that is handy when dusting carpenter bee holes.

How To Kill Carpenter Bees

If you do have an active carpenter bee & infestation, following these steps below would ensure success.

  1. Mix the Cyzmic CS at 0.4 ounces (12 ml) 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 repellent 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 them more frequently.
  2. Next, fill the B&G 1150 Bulb Duster about halfway with Tempo 1% 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 Cyzmic CS. Setting the sprayer nozzle to a stream will allow it to 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.
  3. I know it’s tempting to seal the holes now, but we recommend waiting until the fall. This gives any surviving eggs or adults time to hatch and leave. When sealing the holes, be sure to use a sealant that can be painted over. Always read and follow the label instructions.

Pure Magic
I depend on customer eviews and purchased this product based on what I read. I was not disappointed. The bees were damaging the beautiful finished cedar ceiling of my porch at an alarming rate - a new hole or 2 daily. I paid for rush shipping on this product and BAM - problem solved. It was so easy and effective to apply and worked immediately. I can't overemphasize the value of this product.

Much better than anything at Home Depot or Lowe’s
Worked for me!
The carpenter bees are gone! Thank God!
Review by The Next One / (Posted on 5/29/2020)
I recently bought the dust. I can`t get to the holes because they`re behind fascia boards. I dusted all the areas heavily. If they come and go they`re sure to get the dust on them. I still see quite a few bees.
How long does the dust take to work? Any suggestions?

Amazing product! Amazing service

Great Results!
I had seen a few carpenter bees flying around my rear deck from time to time but didn’t think it was too bad of an issue until I recently inspected the underside of my deck and found I had about 12-15 carpenter bee holes. So I did some online research and came across this website and thought I’d try a DIY approach to solve my little issue. Delivery was prompt. The instructions that were included were extremely through and I followed them exactly. Early one cool spring morning I applied the pesticide with a sprayer and then dusted each of the holes. The next day I inspected the area and to my surprise there about 15-20 dead bees on the ground, and I noticed that nearly every hole had a dead bee stuck inside it! It’s now been about 3 weeks since the one and only application and there has zero bee activity. I was a skeptic at first about a DIY as I’m typically not very handy or willing to try, but this pesticide and dusting really impressed me.

Definitely works
This is the only product I’ve ever seen that works. I still have bees flying around but none are boring. Not a single one. Very pleased with this product for my log house

Review by KS / (Posted on 7/24/2019)
It really works!
I sprayed ur garage this spring and I have yet to see a carpenter bee bore a hole. I am totally shocked and excited about how it worked. The bees are buzzing around, but not boring into the garage.

Bees Gone in Minutes!
Had 3 bee hole entrances under my nice cedar mantel on my covered outdoor fireplace and 2 entrances on some wood shutters. Started with the Tempo dust in the bulb, followed the instructions including protection; make sure you have a mask, glasses and long rubber gloves, it is a fine dust and you don’t want to breath it! I dusted the crap out of the holes using the flexible tube; that was mandatory in my case, the bee channels must have been 1-3 feet long an in two different directions, critical to puff it deep down the tunnels. Stood back and immediately started hearing buzzing inside the mantel and out came the bees, staggering in a white dust coating, falling to the ground. 36 bees came out of my 5 foot wide mantel, I couldn’t believe how many were in there! They just dropped on the ground withering. I graciously put them out of their misery with a gentle crunch of my foot; very satisfying since they were trying to destroy my mantle. 5 more out of the shutters; found several more the next day on the ground. Sprayed all surfaces the next day with the Cyzmic, no activity for several days. Then I saw one bee return, hovered around but wouldn’t even land; left after about 5 minutes, Haven’t seen another bee once. This stuff is fantastic! My exterminator sprayed earlier and said his treatment would take care of them, but it did nothing. This is the price of one treatment and solved it immediately. Highly recommend it!

Got rid of carpenter bees in one application
Worked like a charm! Extremely satisfied!
Review by Danmag / (Posted on 7/2/2018)
Product is incredible!
I was worried carpenter bees would destroy our house. An infestation is a nice way of saying we had a lot of them. I was skeptical whether the product would actually work as I continued to hear that there was no way to get rid of the bees. I sprayed everything on a Friday and the bees were totally gone by Sunday. They still have not returned. This product is incredible!
Review by CBees / (Posted on 5/21/2018)
excellent product and less expensive than repairing their damage.
After years of steadily increasing numbers of bees on the south and eastside of our home, they seem to be gone. Product easy to use. Thanks

Very Effective Combination
In mid-March, before any carpenter bee activity had started, I treated a shed that was heavily infested in 2017. I sprayed all wood with the Cyzmic spray and dusted all tunnels. Within 2 hours I counted 10 dead or dying carpenter bees on the ground (hibernating in tunnels?). About a week later, we had a very warm day and the bees started their Spring activities. I noticed another 8-10 bees dying on the ground. It has since turned cold again so I haven't had a chance to see how it works through the Spring but so far I am very happy with this purchase.
Review by Wes / (Posted on 3/26/2018)
Amazing stuff!
Sprayed the dust in existing holes (getting warm here in AL and they are coming out in swarms). I now call the area they nested in the killing fields. within 5 minutes had at least 50 carpenter bees on the ground. Also sprayed in eves of the house where I had significant red wasps and again within 5-10 minutes there was not a wasp to be found.
Review by Bruce / (Posted on 3/19/2018)
Works like a champ
I only wish I would have found this product 2 years ago! Killed 4 in the first 24 hours. I'm sure I've spent 3x what his kit cost just on aerosol sprays alone.
Review by Lisa P / (Posted on 6/1/2017)
Worked as expected
I was dealing with carpenter bee infestation. On any sunny warm day, I would see 40-50 of them flying and chasing each other. After single treatment (spray then dusting in the holes) all the bees have simply disappeared. I have not seen any dead bees on the ground but I have not seen any alive bee either.

Carpenter Bee Kit Works Good
used product 2 weeks ago, reduction in carpenter already
Review by Jake / (Posted on 5/16/2017)
Just buy it
This kit is VERY effective. We just purchased a home and the carpenter bees were everywhere. Spent the first day just locating the holes. The second day we pounded them with the dust. After a week we spent a couple days observing the holes. The bees had completely lost interest in them as well there were dead ones laying below the dust sights. Two weeks later we sprayed and since have had no new sites. We will spray again in two weeks just to add a layer of protection. I can honestly say that if you have an issue with carpenter bees then this kit will take care of it. Buy it, read the instructions, use it and enjoy living carpenter bee free! Absolutely awesome.
Review by Matt / (Posted on 4/28/2017)
Empty Hotel Now
Have tried several methods of getting rid of carpenter bees over the last several years. Our house has cedar eaves and trim that the bees love. Within two days of applying the tempo dust, nearly all signs of activity were gone. Will re-apply on some of the harder to reach holes. Very happy with this product.
Review by Scott / (Posted on 7/10/2016)
Worked great
I used the kit on my house and shed. both are covered in untreated and natural shiplap cedar siding. Both were riddled by the bees. I applied both products per instructions and it's been 2 weeks now and not a bee to be seen anywhere!!! Worked great, I'll seal the holes in the fall.
Review by Jay in Illinois / (Posted on 7/8/2016)
It works!
Am in the early stages of treatment. The spray seems to deter the bees from returning to areas with holes. Also the powder dusted into holes seems to kill bees that come in contact with it. Great kit and I would highly recommend!!
Review by Jerry / (Posted on 7/2/2016)
Worked very well
The liquid worked very well and was easy to apply. The area that the bees were in are now bee free. I just completed the dusting process last week and so far it is working as well. I thought that the bees were going to be a bigger challenge but the kit is taking care of them.
Review by Bill / (Posted on 7/1/2016)

It works!!
We moved into house house and the shed had already had carpenter bee tunnels throughout. We have lived there 9 years and decided to do something about it but didn't know what. We seen this website and decided to try it. One word...Amazing!!!!! It worked the day we used it per instructed. To good to be true!
Review by Aboggs / (Posted on 6/16/2016)
Worth every penny!
Had several bees around pergola. They were pests and flew right at face level. Also, drove my poor dogs nuts! After 1 treatment with Cyzimc spray followed by dusting they disappeared. Have not seen them in 2 weeks. Great product. Thank you
Review by Tina / (Posted on 6/16/2016)
works great and quick
Killed carpenter bees as well as hornets. Works great. Definitely recommend for quick results.
Review by John / (Posted on 6/16/2016)
The carpenter bees were literally reducing our home to piles of sawdust. After using the Bee Kit, they are gone! We had used so many different sprays to no avail but one treatment and they are absolutely gone!!
Review by Lucy / (Posted on 6/7/2016)
I applied the spray and no more carpenter bees leaving their telltale sawdust. This stuff is great!@!

Quick death
Shipping was pretty fast. The carpenter bees eating through my treated wood shed are dead. Very effective.
Review by Jamie / (Posted on 5/19/2016)
Dey dead
Worked like a charm with only a single application. It was a little tricky getting the dust to come out and spray into the holes since it tended to clump up. Other than that, one application with the cyzmic and spraying the holes killed all the bees plus any visitors that continue to arrive to check out the accommodations. Has even worked killing other ground insects that also like that area.

Highly recommend!

Great product.
Best product I have ever seen. We live in a Log home we had built. The bees have been around our home for 15 to 20 years. Nothing worked to keep them away. Bought the dust and liquid for sprayer. The dust had done wonders. The first night I dusted,the next day there were no bees flying and the ones that stepped in it must of died in the nest. Hard to put in words how happy we are with this product. I must warn you to read instruction and follow. I did not wear a mask and some dust got up my nose and stayed numb for two weeks. Very strong stuff. Highly recommend this product. Have not tried the spray for the wood,can't wait to see what it does.

Carpenter Bee Kit Pro - with B&G Sprayer -Worth Every Penny & More
We HAD , and I emphasize the word HAD, every spring for TEN years a problem with carpenter bees. In the past, we were able to control the bees with products such as Raid, some unknown powder, brooms, stomping feet, etc. This method prevented an infestation, but was a lot of work and expense. The bees were in the peak of our pole barn,a height of about 16 feet and were having a great time defeating all our efforts. Carpenter bees are one of the most irritating and damaging pests you can have in the support system of a building. The only thing worse, I think, would be termites.

I emailed Do-Yourself-Pest Control to find out if the B&G sprayer (not included in the kit) would be able to reach the height of our barn. I got a quick response stating the sprayer would reach the peak with no problem. (They were right. The sprayer hit the peak of our barn with ease.)
So, I ordered the Carpenter Bee Kit Pro along with the Sprayer. We noticed the bees were already out and about as the weather was hot for early April. Early in the morning we mixed the Cyzmic in one gallon of water inside the B&G sprayer. We donned our face masks and I supervised while my husband sprayed the peaks of our barn, front to back. We were shocked to discover the next day and it was hot, about 80 degrees....No carpenter bees except for a few guard bees at the front of the barn. Over the next few days we would find dead and dying bees on the cement floor of the barn. Be aware some of the bees will drop out of their drilled holes onto the floor below. We were absolutely elated with this product. We noticed several wasps also bit the dust. The guard bees left after a few days.

I waited a couple of weeks before submitting this review as I wanted to make sure it did the job. This product works great. Not expensive when you consider the overall cost of Raid and other products. I highly recommend especially for barns because the bees are so harmful to the support system of a barn. One application was more than enough for the entire length of a 40 ft barn. Get the sprayer, too. It is very well made. I apologize for the length of this review but if you are still reading you probably have a problem with carpenter bees. We have not tried the dust yet as it was not needed. We might dust the peak of the barn later this summer. Dusting will not be as easy as spraying. Wear some type of face protection as this is a chemical. No strong odor was detected, but it is a chemical, so protect yourself. There was no staining or damage to our barn. We have plastic insulation in the top at the peak. No damage noted to the metal, the pine rafters or the plastic protecting the insulation. It would not be a bad idea to stockpile this product for future use.

Worked as advertised
For years pest control companies have told me that there was nothing they could do to stop the bees from drilling into my deck. I sprayed the liquid first and that got most of them. A week or so later, I used the dust where I could reach them and now I am bee free for the first time in years.
Review by Larry / (Posted on 4/17/2016)
Great stuff!
It worked perfectly. It took a few days for total removal but it totally solved the problem.

Finally found stuff that works.
To late in the season for the spray, but I had dead bees within an hour of using the dust.

carpenter bee
So far one application took care of carpenter bee problem.
It is very good product. I recommend to everyone.
Review by edward / (Posted on 6/22/2015)
Easy to use and works quickly
I had a large infestation of carpenter bees in our wooden fence. I tried wasp spray which is messy and hit or miss (literally). I used the spray and powder as directed and within a day the bees were gone.
I also used it to eradicate some carpenter ants with great success. I highly recommend this product.
Review by Chuck / (Posted on 6/19/2015)
Worked Fast
Tried to kill carpenter bees with wasp spray for the last few years in the spring, spent more $ on that then this whole kit cost.
Ordered the kit, have a metal pole barn for horses with some wood exposed. Had 10-15 bees flying around this spring again. The next afternoon Sprayed & used the power on the wood and by that night had 4 dead bees on the ground. Next day only a few flying around the barn. Since then no bees in sight. 2 weeks later had to spray some of the wood farther away form the first spray area the bees moved. That got rid of them also. Also IMHO seamed to keep the mud dauber wasp away. Great kit and worked with in 24 hrs at my place S.E. MI
