Hi! We live in a row of 100+ year old townhouses in a densely populated area. Our house is brick but our neighbor’s is wood. Each spring we have 4 or 5 annoying male carpenter bees in our yard which is too small to avoid the bees. Last year I saw one female (who appeared to be crawling under the fence to our neighbor’s yard). It looks like we have at most 2 holes in our side of the fence (based on where the males hover), but more bees come over the fence to fight with “our bees.” What do you recommend? Killing the ones we see and treating the holes in our side? We tried Raid, but even if we spray them directly they don’t die. If we get rid of our bees will it attract fewer other males from other yards? Thanks!
