HOW DOES NBS-30 WORK?
NBS-30 is an insect repellent; not an insecticide. The odor of the product’s ingredients is initially quite strong and very noticeable thus repelling the insects. Ingredients are biologically natural and derived from plant extracts.
DOES NBS-30 KILL CARPENTER BEES?
No! NBS-30 is a repellent; not an insecticide. NBS-30’s strong odor repels insects. In addition, treatment of holes drilled by Carpenter Bees as described in previous information on this topic is very important.
Acquire these materials: A can of WD 40, a roll of aluminum foil, and a tube of log caulk such as Energy Seal or 509 Super Caulk.
Insert the red applicator tip into the spray nozzle of WD 40.
Spray WD 40 into each Carpenter Bee hole until it is bubbling out. This will coat existing larvae so that they do not get air and will die. If you happen to shoot WD 40 into a hole with a female carpenter bee in it, the bee will usually stumble out of its hole and fall to the ground. At this time the bee can be safely killed.
Take a piece of aluminum foil and roll it up into a tight ball about 3/8” in diameter. Put the aluminum foil on to the tip of a screwdriver and stuff it into the Carpenter Bee hole as far possible. Any larvae that you did not get with the WD 40 will not be able to get past the aluminum foil once they hatch.
Caulk each Carpenter Bee hole with log caulk.
THE ABOVE PROCEDURE MUST BE FOLLOWED WITH ALL EXISTING CARPENTER BEE HOLES TO ELIMINATE THE BEE INFESTATION.
HOW DO I APPLY NBS-30?

HOW DOES NBS-30 AFFECT EXTERIOR COATINGS?
