Getting stung from carpenter bees while dusting?

I have a carpenter bee problem on the outside of my shed. I know the males can't sting and the females rarely sting. Whats the chances of getting stung dusting the holes? I have multiple holes 10 or so all around the shed (some might be old and not used but I don't know so I need to do all of them). I do see 3-4 bees at times outside buzzing around the shed but no more that that. Does the female or males usually come out right away after being dusted? Should I do all the holes at once even if more bees come out or do as many until they start coming out? Any help will be appreciated without getting stung. Thanks

Answer:

It is highly unlikely to get stung by the carpenter bees. It would be best to make the application with B&G Bulb Duster 1150 during the times of the days the bees are less active. Such as early morning or later evening.
