Default Carpenter bees beware !!!!!

I picked up 500 rounds of .22 LR shotshells today. Soon be time to get the smoothbore Humdinger out to shoot carpenter bees again. I had a ball shooting them last spring. They do a lot of damage to untreated wood

Sounds like fun,more fun than trying to spray them and having the overspray get all over you.
They did a helluva job on my garage last year but now there at my neighbors!

That must be a riot! Do they bust up like little "Japanese Zeros Over the Pacific"??
I talked to a guy at the gun club a long time ago who was into completion air rifle shooting. He told me that in the summertime he would take a paper target and lightly spray it with a orange juice mixture, tack it up, and shoot the flies when they would land on the target at 15 yards or so. He said they would leave a nice grease stain on the paper when you hit them square on!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Growing up we had them all the time. I used to wait until evening right around dusk. All the bees would be in their hive and I would seal them in with caulking. Man the racket they would make the next morning was incredible, nothing like a hive full of pissed off bees.
