Carpenter Bees have taken over my mini-barn in the last couple of years. I swatted over 50 of them last year with a badminton racket, but they seem to learn you are after them and leave while I am holding the racket.

I want to kill these things before they collapse my (wood) mini-barn. There are so many of them, they MUST be doing some serious damage.

You mention in the Carpenter Bee page that you use "screening"? What are you talking about? Do you mean metal screening like on a screen door? What do you do, roll it up in a little roll like a cigarette and stuff it into the hole? Should you put a treated Kleenex inside the rolled up screening? Please explain further.

You also mentioned stuffing a wet Kleenex into the hole. Do you mean to wet the Kleenex with WD-40 and stuff it up in the hole to let the fumes/lubricant kill the bees? -I've never seen WD-40 kill anything. Wouldn't there be a better residual insecticide to soak the Kleenex with?

I'm at my wits end with these bees there are a couple of dozen buzzing around all day long. HELP!!
