Carpenter bees are generally harmless creatures that forage your garden for wood. But in some cases, these buzzing insects can cause damage to your home. A trap can help you catch these bees, so you can release them elsewhere instead of killing them.
Carpenter bees have fitting names, as these insects carve perfectly-round holes into wood to build their nests. They hang out in their nests all winter long, and emerge in the spring to find a new place to build another nest.
It just so happens that your home is the perfect spot for these bees to drill holes for a nest.
So, how can you trap these bees and finally put an end to the hole-drilling? We’re going to share DIY traps you can make at home as well as commercial traps you can buy in the store.
