Begone, Bee!

Caption: A carpenter bee chews a hole in the handle of my rake. These bees build their nests in tunnels they dig in any unprotected wood; note sawdust. I dusted Sevin powder on the hole after he left; that should discourage him, or else make him wish he hadn't bothered! Uncropped image.

Thanks, Julie! My first reaction was, "That's MY rake you're chewing on, buster!" Then I ran for the camera. He was so engrossed, he let me get quite close for a few shots. But I can't let this continue, obviously.

Jim, I've never been stung by a carpenter bee. It's the holes and the damage they do with them that ticks me off. Sevin is an easy to use insecticide, harmless to warm-blooded animals (it's the principal ingredient in flea powder), but deadly to all kinds of bees and wasps. Thanks for your comment!
