"We used this in conjunction with Q8 Log Oil on our log home and it definitely works. It doesn't contain toxic chemicals or insecticides but uses natural ingredients to discourage carpenter bees and ants from wanting to drill... It's awesome stuff and I haven't seen anything else that works as good as this does."

Please Note:  The effective life of this additive varies depending upon a variety of conditions including the type of coating used, surface prep procedures, and climatic conditions.  Many users report continued results several seasons after application.  Two or more coats may be necessary for carpenter bee control. In the event of an active carpenter bee infestation, ALWAYS ream-out the tunnels, powder with poison and caulk thoroughly prior to coating.
