    Damn Bees

    By Mikey on 04/18/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I tried to use the plastic plugs on 10 bee holes under my deck.  I found that the bees were not given enough training to consistently create perfect 1/2" holes in the wood. These plugs could not be hammered into many of the holes.  I ended up bringing a drill with a 1/2" spade bit outside. After not being able to get to some with the bit, I abandoned the plug theory and brought out my caulk king gun. That worked. It might help to taper the nose of these plugs to allow you to get it seated and then driving it home. They sound great in theory but were not consistently able to do what was advertised.

    Expert ResponseExpert response:
    Thank you for your feedback. Some of the 1/2 inch plugs have not been working for Carpenter Bee holes.  This has never been an issue until this year.  For now, we'd recommend using the 3/8 inch plugs for carpenter bees, which seem to be working well for our customers.  You can find the Trebor 3/8 inch plugs here.

    Trebor Plugs a Great Deal in many ways!

    By Batty on 08/21/2011

    Verified Purchase

    I love these plugs and neither Lowes or Home Depot has them. Instead of plugging holes made in patio and/or other concrete areas around the house with concrete or cauk fillers which often don't match in color the T-plugs make holes look neat and uniform. All I have to do the next time I treat is drill through the Trebor Plug/retreat/re-plug so I keep a good supply on hand. I simply place the T-plug in the 1/2 inch hole and pound lightly until they a flush with stone surface.Ideal!. I've been using Dominion 2L to treat for termites and have been doing a very thorough job all the way around the house. This will save the cost of a hired treatment service every year or two by far. Thank you. I plan to keep ordering we needed.

    Trebor Plugs - Excellent Product

    By Barry on 10/06/2010

    Verified Purchase

    I had to treat my home for termites by drilling hundreds of 1/2'" holes in my cinder blocks. I started filling the holes with mortar mix. The mix was falling out of my hands onto the basement floor. My hands were cramping from constantly trying to push mortar into the holes and it was a pain. I found these plugs which simply get tapped from a hammer and the hole is plugged! If future treatment is needed, I will push this plug through the block with a round chisel, retreat and install a new plug. These are well worth the money. Many hours of labor saved and no mortar to clean up! These plugs seal 100% of the hole. No need to worry about air infiltration.

    Trebor plugs

    By Bruce on 07/17/2014

    These plugs where an exact match for my existing plugs which you pretty much have to destroy when removing. I needed about 110 so I will have enough for the next time my exterminator has to remove them for the 5 year treatment.

    Plastic Plugs

    I drilled holes across my porch for termite treatment and the plastic plugs were used to close the holes. They worked great and look better than filling the holes with concrete.

Q
Do i eventually have to replace the trebor plugs with concrete or can i keep the plugs indefinitely?

As recommended, I drilled 1/2 inch holes every 12 inches. planning to add the termidor once I receive it. can I close the holes with trebor plugs indefinitely or should I close them with concrete?

A
Most folks, will eventually seal up the holes with concrete. Trebor plugs work well to plug the hole to give enough time to make sure the treatment is done thoroughly. When used in concrete, it is best to seal the hole up with a concrete patch over time.

Q
Can Trebor Plugs be installed completely flush with a concrete slab?

I'm considering using them to cover drill holes in an interior slab then place sheet vinyl flooring over top, but I don't want to see indentions or protrusions in the flooring at the plug locations.

A
These plugs can be placed flush with the concrete but they are pretty soft and if pushed hard they can be pushed down too far which would make an indentation.
