A guy at work asked me to build him some carpenter bee traps. I had never seen one so he brought one he already had (third pic) so I could look at it. The idea is pretty simple. The bee enters the trap through one of the side holes (which are drilled on a slight upward angle) and is attracted to the light visable through the bigger hole in the bottom and heads there. With the side holes being drilled at an angle, it makes it difficult for the bee to locate them once he is inside the box.
Been stalling on building these for a while but was gluing up some cedar panels so was able to put the scraps to good use. Now back to those panels…
