Get Rid Of Carpenter Bees

We carry a variety of products to get rid of carpenter bees and prevent carpenter bee infestations. If you start early enough, (spring time - March and April) you can prevent these destructive pests from drilling holes in the exterior of your home.

Prevention of Carpenter Bees

You can prevent Carpenter Bees from drilling those holes in the exterior of your homes if you spray a residual insecticide on the exterior surfaces before they start nesting activity.

We suggest FenvaStar EcoCap, LamdbaStar UltraCap 9.7 CS, or Cyper WSP Insecticides. Spray on the areas that are vulnerable to Carpenter Bee holes. Usually these vulnerable areas are unpainted or unvarnished woods. Popular drilling choices for carpenter bees include under siding, under deck rails, under eaves, window frames, etc.

Carpenter Bee Holes

Spray a couple times at intervals of a month apart during the spring and early summer season.

Treatment For Active Infestations

If you wait too long, or have not plugged up previous carpenter bee holes, you can have an active carpenter bee infestation. Carpenter Bees will inhabit previous holes, so make sure to close these holes during the previous Fall months. Don't plug up the holes too soon, other wise the carpenter bees will drill and a new hole in order to exit if they are active.

With an active infestation, we suggest the Carpenter Bee Kits that contain a residual insecticide to mix with water and spray. It also includes an insecticide dust and duster to dust into the carpenter bee galleries.

Some of the kits include a special duster (B&G 1150 R Duster)  with a curved tip in order to get the D-Fense or Tempo insecticide dusts to the galleries.

Carpenter Bee Galleries for dusts

Plug the carpenter bee holes during the Fall season. The carpenter bees remain active during the summer months. If you plug them up too soon, they will simply bore out another hole.
