    I keep one of these handy around the patio and back deck. Keeps the kids busy "hunting" for hours sometimes (me too.) Kills about any bug except a wasp, but it does blow their wings off so they can stomp the sumbitches. It flat out desintegrates a carpenter bee.

    remember the the female can sting, it just takes a bit to get them agitated the male does not have a stinger.

    You can get a pretty good sized bottle of permetherin for a little of nothing and it last quiet a while. I use it around the house and dog kennels as well as on the dogs for flees and ticks

    Bonus points if you get two mid air while they are mating.

    bet a badminton racket would be good. it's kinda fun, swatting them out of the air.
    Permeation is faster.

  11. It’s a damn shame they have to be killed with the way we are losing our pollinators.

    they need to grow antlers then they would be worshiped and protected. "ain't nobody killing "my" carpenter bees".

    I’ve thought about getting some .22 shotshells. Make it little more sporty.

    Shotshells work good. I used to shoot them in a 22 revolver. Fun blasting wood bees in mid air.
