Good product - better than expected
By Reybo on 04/25/2010
Bought this to rid our house of carpenter bees. They drilled holes in it for 40+ years. Year after year I spent more than $100 on spray insecticides, and 50 hours and more each year on patrol, but all I did was dent the population. I couldn't wipe them out. In April 2010, I declared total war on carpenter bees and amassed my troops: 36 cans of Bonide Wasp and Hornet Killer and 2 cans of CB Borid Turpo. And all the hours extermination might require, a benefit of being retired. After applying wasp spray to every bee in range for three days morning-noon-night, there were none to be seen flying. At that point I got the ladder and sprayed CB into the holes as instructed. Took an estimated 1/2 can, so two cans is more than we needed. Where we used to see 20 or more bees a day we have seen zero in the last week. Wow. In early June we will apply a second (perhaps unnecessary) dose of CB in the holes before we hammer in wooden plugs. We bought those plugs in 1985 but knew it would be counter-productive to use them until the larvae was neutralized. We trust that CB Borid Turbo has done that.

Good product. Has seemed to have done the job after 5 treatments.

The plastic tubes did not fit, or at least I couldn't get them to insert into the opening, so I used the tube from last year's can. Also, the can quit spraying before all of the insecticide seemed to be used up. Same thing happened last year.
