    How do you get rid of wood boring bees?

    I have wood Boring Bees allover my car port.  They are a nuisance!  Any way to make them leave?

    I use diatomaceous earth, an organic pest control that works by puncturing the exoskeletons of insects and drying them up. Buy the variety available for gardening, not pool filters. Put in in a turkey baster, reattach the rubber bulb end, inject into the carpenter bee hole, then seal the hole w/ wood putty.  There are also traps available online made from plastic bottles and a bee butter lure.
