Carpenter Bees

 Carpenter bees are drawn to our homes and often attempt to make it their home too.  In order to control them properly Wingman Pest Control uses a three-step approach.

Step 1

The first visit involves getting the carpenter bees under control.  We use electronically calibrated equipment to apply safe and effective carpenter bee pesticide dust in order to control them.  We apply material exactly inside the holes where the carpenter bees are living.

 After the carpenter bees have been successfully controlled we can seal their old holes.

Step 2

The next step is to give the pesticide dust some time to work and allow the carpenter bees to carry it deep into their nests.  This helps to ensure that no larva survives.  

 We can seal holes and most gaps where the carpenter bees are living.

Step 3

During the second visit we also offer a sealing service.  Sealing the carpenter bee holes helps keep moisture out of the wood and acts as an indicator if the initial treatment needs reapplied.  If the bees are still alive they will chew out the caulk.
