NBS 30 Insect Repellent can be mixed with water and sprayed on any stained or painted wood surface with the exception over Lifeline Advance Top Coat. Mix a one pint container of NBS 30 with five gallons of water and apply with a pump sprayer. When this mixture is applied to wood in an exposed area it is subject to being washed off in a heavy rain. Re-apply as necessary every 30 to 60 days. NBS 30 works best when used as a stain or paint additive because the coating locks the product on to the wood surface.
NBS 30 Insect Repellent is exempt from EPA Regulation under the Federal Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). When used as directed it is non-phytotoxic and will not harm plants or turf. It is safe for pets and people. Caution: This product is toxic to fish. Keep out of lakes and streams or areas designated for commercial honeybee farming.

I tried to find you in our system so that I could call you to discuss your disappointment in NBS30. I could not find you in our records. Perhaps your purchase was made under a company name or under a spouses name…
NBS30 is a repellent, it is not an insecticide. If you already had a bee problem, NBS30 will not send the bees away. The life cycle of the bees at your home must be ended. Each bee hole should be treated with a poison that will kill the bees and their larva. If you do not end the lifecycle by killing the larva that is in the holes, as adults, those bees will come back to your home.
I hope you will call me at 888-208-2248 so we can talk about your bee situation.

I used this product on my log cabin mixing it only with water and applying it with a pump sprayer. It worked very well for the past 2 summers but I’m needing to apply it again this summer. I feel that getting 2 years out of it applying it this way is very good and I’m happy with doing this until I stain again.

I purchased this product because the carpenter bees needed to be controlled. I used this product as recommended when applying the stain/oil to my log home last year. The bees are back this year and drilling again. This product did not work at all.

I used this product on an old house with red cedar siding in the harrisburg p.a. area that had finally dried out and had many carpenter bees boring all over it.
I wanted to make the siding as undesirable as possible for the bees to want to eat so…. I mixed this product in with Sikkens oil based SRD Stain.
I has been about 4 years. The bees are starting to eyeball the house again.
I am going to re treat this house the same way.
There were several paint store employees that said nothing works. They are wrong!
Thats my story with this product

My home. wrapped in cypress, was “carpenter bee central” when we bought it 5 years ago. Some of the facia boards looked like Swiss cheese. I found this wonderful NBS 30 and it has been a God-send. It was supposed to keep the bees away for three years and it actually lasted four. We are sealing again right now and you can bet your sweet behind I’ve added NBS 30 to every ounce of the sealer. I highly recommend this product to anyone with a carpenter bee infestation.

Great Stuff!! I have a lake house that has stayed infested with red wasps. After adding this to the paint when repainting, there has not been one nest formed on anything that was painted. Wasps still swarm as always but no nests made on the house. Even my Handy Man has been surprisingly impressed. I’m giving some to my brother for Christmas to use on his deer stands.
