    Must be a dead tree close to here full of them, trying to bore holes in the porch.. Great shotgun practice IMO.

    We have never had carpenter bees until this year. We have probably killed 8-10 in the last two days and there are double that left. We've never seen them like this. All wood on the porch is heavily stained. We did find some boring in driftwood in momma's rock garden.
    House is brick, roof is steel. Window trim and trim are metal.I don't know what they are after.

    Carpenter bees. A tennis racket is effective.

    First year I’ve had them also. Besides a tennis racket and a gun......any other methods to get rid of them?
     
  8. I wack em to the ground with a fly swatter then stomp on em.They love the cedar on my house and a 6' ft wood fence.
    I have also caulked them in there hole.

    A .22 with bird shot work well on those, it's really funny when you wing one.

    Never tried the red ryder, nice shooting
     
  13. Get you one of these. I got one a few years back and have fun sitting on the porch killing flying insects, especially flies. But have killed a carpenter bee or bumble bee a time or two. Fun for the kids too.

    :thinking: Always use enough gun is my motto, not sure what the range on a carpenter bee would be with that thing

    However it looks to be a heck of a lot more fun than a fly swatter :clap:
