With the first warm days of spring, my house was suddenly surrounded with swarms of Carpenter Bees that seem to have materialized as they do every year just to destroy the eaves of my house. Consequently, I'm off to the hardware store for more "Kill da Beez" spray.
Every year, these damnable winged termites go to work on my eaves, boring around inside of them as I work to wipe out as many as I can before they do too much damage and hopefully before their #1 enemy shows up--the Woodpecker.
Uh...Hooray? Honestly I'm not really sure which one is worse. I like woodpeckers. I have ever since Walter Lantz introduced my generation to Woody so many years ago. However in their zeal to find and eat the bees inside my eaves, these little bastards cause just as much damage if not more, and the infernal loud pecking on the side of my house is the verbal insult added to the financial injury.
GET OFF MY HOUSE!!!!
Anyone got bee-killing suggestions likely to be more efficient than just spraying the hell out of my eaves then standing around trying to nail each individual flying bug until they're all gone? Is there a way that I can just convince them to go to my crazy cat neighbors' house instead?
