Although I appreciate these carpenter bees because without them I would have no apples (my honeybees are apparently busy elsewhere when the apple tree blossoms), they are destroying my barn, and now starting on the house! There are holes everywhere in the eaves. Has anyone had any luck discouraging carpenter bees from one place and encouraging them to nest in a less destructive place? I don't want to kill them, but it's completely out of hand.
