How many gallons of Boracare would I need to treat 1,000 sq feet of exterior cedar siding?

I have a carpenter bee larvae problem. Woodpeckers have pecked 11 holes in my house to get to them. Would spraying this product on my cedar siding solve my problem?


We would recommend using two gallons of Boracare. This product will generally treat about 500 square feet.  Boracare is not labeled for carpenter bees. A dust, such as Delta Dust, would be an excellent option in the holes. It will make it uninhabitable for the bees to live.
