Carpenter bee control

We recently purchased a small log cabin in Virginia that has evidence of carpenter bee (minor) infestation. Would I dust the existing carpenter bee holes this time of year? Do I leave them unplugged? Give me any advance control. Do I just wait until spring to treat?


We would recommend using Tempo 1% Dust. This can be used at this time of the year. You can also use Trebor plugs to plug the holes, but it is not necessary. Dust around the entire hole with a bulb duster. This will make it uninhabitable for the bees.
