I often see people asking how to get rid of carpenter bees. Finally found a video of a method that works.

I'm surprised he didn't use an AR15.

I know I learned I had carpenter ants when I found little, tiny cigarette butts and Budweiser cans around the house so, I assume it's the same with carpenter bees?

We have a couple of carpenter bees that we consider residents in our back yard. They made a home out of an old redwood table/shelf in our garden shed. They seem pretty harmless.

I have seen jobs where entire soffits and fascia are ruined by them on homes. It can get quite extensive. They donít seem to sting at all though.

There seems to be a large variety of carpenter bees. Some may be more aggressive than others I suppose. But I swear, the one's in our back yard are pretty cool! they mind their own business and are always hauling away pollen.
