I have almost completed our log home in SE Ohio. I am concerned about pest control, primarily carpenter bees. Is there anything I can apply to the logs before I stain them to keep insects away?


Carpenter bees are tough to stop. There is really nothing that will stop them if they find your house. An ongoing pest control spray will help. Borate will stop most wood boring bugs, but carpenter bees do not digest the wood fiber so it is not effective.
