I was alerted to the fact that the house was exterminated last year for bees, but this was a foreclosure that I got a really good deal on, and as a stupid, just recently divorced female, I bought it anyway because I could afford it. (lol) I had carpenter bees before, but it was only one or two at the most, and I was very vigilant in getting rid of them, because they annoyed my dog. I never knew the damage that you could really do, as I never did the research on them.
So let me see if I understand this correctly. Since the males are here, then they didn't finish mating this season. Once I don't see the males, then the mating season is over, and I can go and treat all the holes that I see for a more effective treatment. Is that correct?
Also, if I have the yearly contract, then I should keep calling them back now, to keep spraying the house, since they are mating now?
I know the males are trying to intimate me, but, boy, they are doing a good job of that. I'm in northeast, pa. About when is the mating season over ???????? When do these males go away.
I'll treat the females as effectively as I can, but I need for the males to stop flying at me. They make me a nervous wreck.
