isCarpenter bees are beneficial to the environment because they are excellent pollinators. Unfortunately, if they nest in or around your home, carpenter bees can cause extensive damage to softwoods such as pine and cedar. They sell traps to kill them but why let them die if they are good pollinators and beneficial to the environment. You can take this trap and catch them and when you catch them instead of leaving them in the trap to die you can relocate them away from your home or wherever they are causing you problems.
This trap is ready for when they crawl in you can take the trap and unscrew the jar lid to relocate them to a better environment for the bee.
The voice behind the blog will be Mike & Rhonda Loudermilk. Life at Louderbranch Farms is very far from simple. It is very complicated at times. We would love to live a slower paced life but that is just not possible for what we are trying to accomplish. We both work full time jobs for others plus have our own business. We spend most of our time working. That is what we do! We love gardening, caring for our animals and making handmade bath products such as Rhonda Lynne's Ole Fashioned Soap.
