    Q
    How and what is the trap attached to?
    Can you hang it from a nail? Or do you nail or screw it to the wood surface?
    A
    The carpenter bee trap has a flat top and one flat side so it may be screwed to wood directly over the existing carpenter bee holes. You can also just hang the carpenter bee trap by the wire on top. If you wish to remove the wire, just push it out through the bottom of the carpenter bee trap. If you have a new structure and want to avoid a carpenter bee infestation, place the carpenter bee traps on corners and peaks of buildings for the best results. Carpenter bees really prefer the sunny side, so the carpenter bee traps will catch more carpenter bees on that side.

    Q
    How do I keep the bees in the trap?
    I had a bee go into the trap and then got out? Aren't they suppose to get stuck in it?
    A
    Yes, the idea of the Carpenter Bee trap is that the bees have no way of escaping. This is very strange that the bee was able to escape. Please contact Carpenter Bee Solutions for help trouble shooting with this trap.

    Q
    Once they're trapped, now what?
    What is recommended to do with the bees once they're trapped in the bottle? Is there a humane way to dispose of them? If brought to a heavily wooded area, would they be more likely to use trees instead of buildings?
    A
    We think this question would be better answered by the creater of the trap to assist you in humanely removing them. You can reach Carpenter Bee Solutions at 256-253-2019.

    Q
    So bees are in the jar of the Carpenter Bee Trap, now what?
    How do I dispose of the bees in the jar? They are still buzzing and alive... If I unscrew lid, they fly away, defies the purpose of catching it... Is this like a training device of catch and release and they learn on not returning?
    A

    Once bees have been trapped in the Carpenter Bee Trap you can place a little soapy water in the jar to kill them.
