Dan from Richmond, Va writes

What would be a reasonable estimate for the time it takes to kill a carpenter bee after dust?

I may be getting too unrealistic in my expectation for carpenter bees dying. If a bee crawls through sprayed dust when can he be expected to die? Thanks for your help!!


Depending on what stage the bee is in the life cycle it can take minutes to hours. The idea is that the adult bees carry the dust in the holes to the larvae.
