That'll do it. I don't recommend the "Kill them with fire" approach though. That'll burn your damn house down!

Not usually Seriously, it works as good or better than wasp spray, and doesn't leave poisonous chemicals for my kid to get on her.

What I do with the carpenter bees is squarsh 'em when they are boring their holes in my house and then fill the hole up with caulking. Those holes are made into brood chambers, they lay eggs on top of one another in a stack, or sometimes in galleries, sealing each one in before laying another. I think with carpenters they will lay a dozen or more eggs in a chamber (compared to a honeybee queen which will lay up to 2000 eggs in a single day during her top production). Because of this you want to seal up their holes so that the young bees are not able to emerge when they hatch out. Their holes can be a foot or two long into the wood, but parallel to the grain.

With most carpenters I will just let them bee, as they are beneficial insects and excellent pollinators.
