My family has a small log cabin that we built 20+ years ago. We live in Tennessee and have a problem with borer bees. Then, the wookpeckers go after the bees and destroy the logs. What would be a good woodfilling product and then a good product to use to coat the pine logs?


There is no good way to get rid of carpenter bees. Get a bee dusting kit from Timeless Wood Care Products at 800-564-2987. You will have to dust the bee holes constantly for about 2 years before you see a big decline in their numbers, and they will never truly be gone completely.

I live in Colorado and we seem to have alot of woodpeckers this year. Most of the time they just use the vents to make a drill sound to atract a mate. But recently they started making holes, how do I get rid of them?
