carpenter bee trap - gatorade bottle at bottom, holes drilled upward at a 45 degree angle on the sides. Hope it works

carpenter bee trap, I pinned this last year. Since then, my husband and I have built one and hung it. This thing works!

Getting Rid of Carpenter Bees

How to Get Rid of Carpenter Bees-It's very easy to do yourself, and it 100% works! I have used this to get rid of Carpenter bees my whole life.

This will keep the bees gone all year long.
