Carpenter Bee Trap

Recommended Posts

While inspecting a big log home this week I came across a device I had never seen. The owner had them installed around the home, at first I thought they were just a bird house but the caretaker of the property explained that they were Carpenter Bee traps. The bees go in the holes or bore their own hole and then head for the light (glass jar) at the bottom of the trap. Also the wood on the trap is bare or not treated with anything, the bees like it better than the logs that have been treated. Once in they can not get back out!

They really work because I did not find one hole from a bee on this home.
