A reader writes in with a problem. It sounds as if the house may be infested with carpenter bees and professionals have been unable to get rid of them. Has anyone had success with exterminating bees? How is it done?
I have been trying to get bees off my house for the last 7 years. I've had the house treated 5 times and called the bee exterminator 3 times. No luck. The bees come back to the very same area. This year, after the exterminator came I had the whole front house outside wall replaced with new wood material, 4/5 months later bees returned. I've also replaced the inside sheetrock twice. I've tried to get them on my own since the expert on bees have not. I've tried on my own but I've had no luck. I can't affort treatment every 4 months. I heard from a neighbor prior owners have had the same problem.
I think there must be a way to get rid of the bees. I need help. Can anyone help?
