carpenter bees

Recommended Posts

Bottle traps do work, but they aren't the best looking things in the world.

Among my garden plants is a salvia (Salvia microphylla), named one I have is called Hot Lips.

See in foreground on right of path. Gets to 3' by 4' or so.

Blooms all spring, summer, and into fall till frost. Carpenter bees love the blooms so much that I can stand beside the plant with a pair of work gloves and just mash them with my fingers or clap them between palms to shock them to ground where I stomp 'em. Get done in ten minutes what the bottle trap takes weeks to do.
