This Carpenter Bee Trap is deceptively simple but extremely effective. The trap itself is constructed of wood and plastic bottles. The Carpenter Bee Trap does not need a bait or any additional lure to do its job. The trap looks like the holes where the carpenter bees live. They fly into the Carpenter Bee Trap become trapped in the plastic bottle and their buzzing and natural scent attracts their carpenter bee friends to come and join them.
Place the Carpenter Bee Trap over existing carpenter bee holes or in other areas of the structure where the sun shines directly. This trap once in place will last for years.

Carpenter Bee trap
By Russell in Hollywood, SC on 04/21/2013
Hey, bought two. Both trapped bees within two days of putting up! However, the construction appeared to be done a little hasty, as there was inconsistencies in the workmanship...one's roof was completely to one side instead on centered...but hey, they worked fine...obviously the bees don't care!

It truely works!
By Barbara in Macomb, MI on 05/05/2013
Finally after 5 years of torment, I can sit on my deck. Tried everything, including professional pest control. Took a few weeks, but after one bee found its way to "home", I had 20+ in the trap. So simple - so effective.

Don't Buy it.
By John in New Market Md. on 05/02/2013
It is poorly made. Looks like a kid made it in cub scouts with a hand saw. I guess the bees think so also. No one has moved in yet. Bees al around but none in the bottle. The trap has been up for over 1 week.

By Valerie in Toms River, New jersey on 05/29/2013
I hung mine up and NOTHING!! Waste of money. I caught 114 Carpenter bees in one week with a shrimp net and killed them with my favorite weapon, my shoes.

Made one myself
By Sarah in Tina, Mo on 06/16/2013
After seeing these online I decided to make one myself. It only took about 45 min to make and after hanging 3 days ago I have 4 bees in it. This was simple to make and is working well. Not sure how many bees we have left after killing a handful with the water hose and a tennis racket!
Save your money. Kill the bees
By Paul in Belmont on 06/08/2017
I can see why they charge a lot for this. It doesn't work. No one will buy more than 1. I imagine there is about $2.00 worth of materials in this. And that is only if they actually bought the water that the bottles they supply once contained. I suppose this could work if there were some helpful hints on how to bait or locate the trap. I am very disappointed in the results, which is zero.
Carpenter Bee gone
By Patrick in JOHNSTOWN, Pa on 05/21/2017
Works great but does take some time for the bees to find the Trap would buy again

Carpenter Bee Traps work if you do this...
By Joseph in Bryson City, NC on 07/07/2016
Carpenter Bee traps work extremely well, BUT the bees are fussy, you must out this on the sunny side of the house (where they are eating your home) you must spray the current holes with the powdered carpenter bee killer (they sell it here and it works) then plug the holes (they sell the plugs here and they work) put these traps in multiple places and as soon as they die in a bottle (make sure they are dead) put them in any bottles that are empty and NEVER dump them all out. (the scent attracts others) I have done this on 19 Log cabins that I maintain. Joe
Works like a charm!
By Remy in Lexington, Ky on 06/23/2016
I think the reason other people may have had difficulty with this item is the placement location. Like in real estate, it's all about location with carpenter bees. Bees in this part of the country don't like to go much higher than 6 feet when nesting. I put the trap where I saw them most often and 'voila!', it filled up quickly. Another one placed at another location went empty for a week or so, and then overnight there were 8 in there. I think it's a very good value. Sure you could build one yourself, but it would take a long time. Just buy it and get it done!

Carpenter Bee Trap
By Johnw in Batavia, Illinois on 06/22/2016
Did catch one bee. Had 8 holes in my deck so assume more than 1 bee was active. Was hoping for more. Maybe time will tell. Hopefully!

No Luck Catching Carpenter Bees
By in Rossville, GA on 06/10/2013
I hung the Carpenter Bee trap on the sunny side of the house where carpenter bees are having a field day drilling my house. Not one has shown any interest in this so-called trap.

You really do not want to post my review. It was a waste of money and I feel foolish for buying it.

Simple but WORKS
By in Pinson, Al on 06/02/2013
Ok, simple and made with cheap materials, however, works Very Well. After 2 weeks, 7 bees in my trap. I'm thinking of purchasing more and positioning them all around my yard/house.

QHow and what is the trap attached to?
Can you hang it from a nail? Or do you nail or screw it to the wood surface?
AThe carpenter bee trap has a flat top and one flat side so it may be screwed to wood directly over the existing carpenter bee holes. You can also just hang the carpenter bee trap by the wire on top. If you wish to remove the wire, just push it out through the bottom of the carpenter bee trap. If you have a new structure and want to avoid a carpenter bee infestation, place the carpenter bee traps on corners and peaks of buildings for the best results. Carpenter bees really prefer the sunny side, so the carpenter bee traps will catch more carpenter bees on that side.

QDoes the Carpenter Bee Trap come with the wood that contains the hole?
AThe carpenter bee traps comes with the piece of wood that contains the hole.
06/01/2013 Lindsey from Belle Vernon Pa
QHow do I keep the bees in the trap?
I had a bee go into the trap and then got out? Aren't they suppose to get stuck in it?
AYes, the idea of the Carpenter Bee trap is that the bees have no way of escaping. This is very strange that the bee was able to escape. Please contact Carpenter Bee Solutions for help trouble shooting with this trap.

QOnce they're trapped, now what?
What is recommended to do with the bees once they're trapped in the bottle? Is there a humane way to dispose of them? If brought to a heavily wooded area, would they be more likely to use trees instead of buildings?
AWe think this question would be better answered by the creater of the trap to assist you in humanely removing them. You can reach Carpenter Bee Solutions at 256-253-2019.
