Default Carpenter Bees

These are out in force this year. Any advice on how to prevent or kill them would be appreciated.

This is the time of the year, the males are hanging around looking for the female to come out. So if they are hanging around your house, you may have a bigger problem.

You should look into getting a carpenter bee kit with Cyonara in it as opposed to Cyper WP because Cyper WP can leave a powdery residue on whatever surface you are treating. Depending on which kit you get it should help prevent the carpenter bees from coming back. I made the mistake of buying one with Cyper WP first and THEN did my research lol. PM me if you need a recommendation on a product.
