Using Trebor Plugs to seal up existing holes after you have used your insecticides also helps to Prevent carpenter bee damage in subsequent years. Be sure to Inspect wooden structures thoroughly for carpenter bee nests and bee activity before applying insecticides.
**While carpenter bees are solitary bees and do not attack in groups, it is possible that you can be stung while performing a treatment. If you are sensitive to bee stings or bee stings are intolerable, we recommend that you hire a professional pest control operator to control carpenter bees. If you are not allergic but are worried about bee stings, you may want to consider purchasing and wearing a bee suit.**
How to Apply the Carpenter Bee Kit
STEP 1 - SPRAY - Cyzmic CS Insecticide
Cyzmic CS contains two active ingredients to create a unique and long-lasting insecticide treatment in areas where carpenter bees are likely to be active. Cyzmic CS must be diluted with water only and applied with a sprayer such as a 1 gallon hand pump sprayer.
*Wear gloves when mixing and handling pesticides, such as Nitrile Chemical Resistant Gloves.
*To dilute Cyzmic CS, first shake the concentrate well. Fill your sprayer tank with 1/3 - 1/2 of the desired volume of water, then add the desired amount of Cyzmic CS concentrate. Agitate the tank before you finish filling the sprayer with water, then agitate again before your application.
*For initial treatment, use 1 x .4 oz dose per gallon of water. For follow up treatments, use 1 x .4 oz dose per gallon of water. *Spray again after 21 days as needed while carpenter bees are active.
*Begin spraying areas where carpenter bees have been active the past Spring and/or Fall, spraying prior to new activity or as soon as activity is noticed. Spray wooden areas that are susceptible to carpenter bee infestations including eaves, siding, fascia boards, railings, posts, fencing, and landscape fixtures. You may want to start on areas that receive lots of direct sunlight, at the apex of rooflines, and in areas where there are overhangs.
*Applying a spray band to areas where bees are likely to excavate new nests will help to prevent new damage.
*To reduce the likelihood of stings, treat in the early morning or late evening when bees are less active.
*Spray once a month as needed while carpenter bees are active.
*Cyzmic CS is versatile, aiding in control of many common crawling and flying insects, both outdoors and inside. See the product label for complete instructions.
*Keep pets and other people out of the treatment area until the application is dry, usually about an hour.
*Use diluted solution within 24 hours of mixing. Agitate spray solution if your application is interrupted.
*Store Cyzmic CS concentrate in a temperate area, out of direct sunlight, and out of reach of children or pets.
*To treat areas up to 30 feet high, consider using a Chapin Slide Pump Sprayer to apply Cyzmic CS Insecticide.
STEP 2 - DUST - Delta Dust and B&G Bulb Duster 1150
Delta Dust is a water-resistant insecticide dust with the powerful active ingredient Deltamethrin, suitable for most common crawling and flying insect pests. Using insecticide dust directly in existing carpenter bee nests gives you the best chances of getting rid of carpenter bees that are already in the area. The formulation of the dry, powdery dust is even more accessible to carpenter bees since the tiny hairs on their bodies will easily pick up the dust. The B&G Bulb Duster 1150 has a large capacity as well as a flexible extension tip that makes dusting fast and easy.
*After your spray application has dried, you can apply the insecticide dust.
*Using insecticide dust can be very messy, so be sure to wear gloves such as Nitrile Chemical Resistant Gloves.
*To fill the Bulb Duster 1150, gently unscrew the top to allow space for filling the duster.
*Gently unscrew the top of the Delta Dust, then tap dust into the bulb duster, filling the bulb no more than halfway to allow space for the dust to move inside the duster.
*You may want to add a few small objects such as coins or pebbles to prevent dust from clumping.
*Replace the cap by gently following the threads until the top is fastened securely.
*Use the longest, curved extension tip for most applications. Additional segments may be added onto the top of the duster for more reach.
*To apply dust, simply direct the extension tip into the application area, then squeeze the bulb to release the insecticide.
*Before relaxing your grip on the duster, pull it away from the treatment area to prevent sucking up moisture or debris that may clog the duster or cause dust to clump.
*Apply dust directly into existing carpenter bee damage. One puff of dust in each hole is plenty of dust for the bees to pick up a lethal amount of active ingredients.
*Apply dust late in the evening to make sure you are contacting the existing female carpenter bees when they are less likely to sting.
*Dust applications also help to eliminate the immature stage of the developing carpenter bee, reducing future populations.
*Dust applications generally only need to be made once per season.
*Store dust and duster in a dry, temperate area out of reach of children and pets.
STEP 3 - SEAL DAMAGE - Trebor plugs
*Wait at least 14 days after spraying and dusting before sealing up existing holes. This allows time for the female bees to return to the nest, come into contact with the application, and spread the dust throughout the nest.
*Plugging holes too quickly can result in bees creating new routes into the nest before coming into contact with the insecticides, resulting in more damage.
*The included Trebor plugs fit perfectly into existing carpenter bee holes so that bees do not return to the same site the following year.
*Holes also can be sealed with wood patch or similar materials.

Carpenter Bee Control Kit
By in Brookeland, TX on 07/01/2013
Here in Texas we have lots of carpenter bees and I purchased a log cabin that had been vacant and the bees made themselves at home. I ordered the kit and started filling in the holes, spray first then a plug and then I used caulking over the plug. The only downfall was I should have ordered extra plugs as I ran out. The bees seem to have found somewhere else to go as I haven't seen any evidence of them since using the kit. Thank you "DoMyOwnPestControl" I will be ordering more from you.

carpenter bee kit
By Frank in Leeds, MA on 07/01/2014
used powder, liquid spray and plugs as directed by internet instructions and haven't seen any carpenter bees or new damage in two weeks ( I keep my fingers crossed and my eyes open). If nothing happens the rest of this year or spring of next year I'll be a real happy customer.
By Sheree in Chicago on 10/13/2017
I am pleased with the timeliness of my order and the courtesy given to any questions or concerns I have about proper usage of my product.
Worked like a charm
By Chris in Chicago, IL on 09/20/2017
Bought this as I anticipate my battle with nature to be ongoing. While I had some difficulties with working with the dust and getting the liquid concentrate into the spray bottle (not a fault of the product!), I am pleased to say even my stumbled attempts to treat my house with this product appears to have met with success. The spring wave of bees departed and I have not seen them make a return. More details or advice on care and disposal of the product could be available, but outside of that, product is as advertised and works.
Great Product !!
By Joel in Hiawassee, Georgia on 09/18/2017
After 2 years of watching carpenter bees drill into my cabin deck railing in the mountain home, I realized it was time to take some action. Previously used wasp sprays did very little. Upon reading the reviews and product information, I ordered this kit in September 2017. To give you an idea of what infestation problem I had, I marked with chalk 51 holes in my railing and overhead beams. I sprayed the Cyzmic solution and came back and treated each hole with the Delta dust. I wore a mask and used rubber gloves for protection. While waiting approximately 1 hour, I watched aproximately 100 bees drop out of the holes. They appeared to be predominate males bees. I feel like I am in a position to protect my cabin in early spring(March/April). I will write another review in the spring to give everyone an update. Thank you to the "DoMyOwn" staff for their guidance!
This kit works
By Jr in Indianapolis, Indiana on 07/28/2017
I had a carpenter bee issue at many spots in my home. I used many cans of wasp spray, I built some carpenter bee traps out of a jar and a 4x4 that didn't work. I hid in the bushes with a tennis racket and a red bandanna wrapped around my head waiting to ambush them... none of this had any lasting impact. I used the dust only, twice within a three week period and another two times two months later before plugging all of the holes with the little plastic caps. I waited a year before writing this review to ensure that the carpenter bees didn't come back. I could not be happier with the results. The kit works when all of the other nonsense does not.
By Dc in Chicago,il on 07/20/2017
This is my second time using their. The first time was for termites. It's been 3 years and have seen another since. I used another product for the bees ,I put the powdered products by the holes I saw the enter and exit. It took two applications, but no more bees. I would strongly recommend using do my own, before using a professional that will charge you thousands for something you can do for a few hundred.
By Paul in Glenview, IL on 07/17/2017
Seems like a complete kit to control the bees. Dusted their holes and haven't seen any since.
This stuff works!
By Dan in Hopkinsville, KY on 06/10/2017
I was very impressed with the quality and effectiveness of this kit. The bulb syringe that comes with the kit is definitely industrial quality and easy to use. One application of the product has resulted in no bee sightings for ten days.
By Paul in Ellijay, GA on 06/09/2017
I had a severe carpenter bee issue, and tried many different products to control/eliminate them. Nothing that I've tried gave the results I was expecting. Someone recommended Delta Dust. This product works very good. Being a dust that is blown into bee holes, it stays in the holes and remains effective for at least two weeks. (The instructions say to plug the bee holes after two weeks.) Wonderful product. Good price. Good supplier.
By F in springfield on 06/07/2017
It worked. Additionally in the last twenty plus years we never had house ants. The spray and dust took care of that problem
A Product That Works!
By Paul in Ellijay, GA on 05/22/2017
Friends have recommended Delta Dust to control Carpenter Bees. The product actively controls bees for many days, and works better than any other that I've used. I could not be happier. The product exceeds my expectations.

QWhat is the best product to eradicate carpenter bees?
AWe would recommend applying the products in our Carpenter Bee Kit for the best treatment. You will apply the FenvaStar as a surface application and allow to dry completely prior to lightly dusting the bored holes. Leave the holes open for 2-3 months and then they can be plugged using the trebor plugs included. We recommend applying a surface application monthly on the exterior and dusting early spring and early fall. Please let us know if you need anything else. We are always happy to help! 866-581-7378 M-F 9-5 PM EST

QWill the Carpenter Bee Control Kit harm the stain on my porch?
Also, I need to put a second layer of stain on my porch this summer. If I treat with the kit first, how long do I wait to stain?
AThe Carpenter Bee Control Kit contains FenvaStar EcoCap which dries clear and should not pose any staining. Please test a small area first to be sure. You should only apply the product after the stain has completely dried. All staining should be done prior to application. If you were to stain over the treatment, you would lose effectiveness from the product and after to re-apply.

QWhat can I use to treat carpenter bees that are eating my house where their holes are not accessible for a dusting application?
They go up thru the vents on the soffits on the house. Their holes are not accessible for a dusting application. Would just using the liquid spray be effective? Any suggestions?
A Yes, a spray would be a good option for you since dust cannot be used. The Temprid SC inside of the Carpenter Bee Kit is a very good option. It has two active ingredients in it to help combat bees and other insects as well. There is a residual so it will keep on killing for up to 30 days.†

QWhat do you suggest doing to get rid of bees that fly around my children's wooden playset?
I am thinking they are carpenter bees, since they are around wood, but I am not certain. In the afternoon, I can see about 15-20 of them all flying around the wooden playset. What product(s) do you suggest I use and in what manner? Thank you for your help.
ATo treat the swing set for Carpenter Bees, we recommend Carpenter Bee Control Kit. All products are safe for children and pets to be around after the treated area has dried.

QWhat time of year should I apply the Carpenter Bee Control Kit?
A Carpenter bees are normally present in the spring and possibly again in the early fall, depending on what region you are in.† It would be a good idea to consult the cooperative extension office in your area for more information on the best time to apply in your specific area.† You may also want to look over our Carpenter Bee Control Guide if you have not already done so.†
