Hi-Do the female Carpenter Bee's die off in the winter or do they stay alive in the hole during the Winter when temps are down to freezing? I first noticed activity last summer under my shed. Yesterday I inspected as far as I could see under the the shed (It sets on the 4x4 ground at the North end and about 14 inches high on the South side) I found 3 different holes on the 2 x 4's on the East side where I saw the acitivity last Summer. I presume that the female Carpenter Bee is in the chamber during the Winter! What kind of wire do you use to bend & run down into the chambers? Should I spray some WD40 into the chamber first then use the wire the next day! What would you do? Please advise! Thanks, R.J.
