      OK. You need to saturate the hole(s) keeping the hole sealed with a rag so the fluid doesn't just drip out while you are spraying. Really flood the hole(s) with this product. Check a little later and you will see bees struggling for life on the ground --perhaps only 2 or 3 at a time since they tried to get out of the hole nest. Just step on them. More will show up later on the ground like in the morning if you spray in the evening. Likely you could have a dozen in there which hatched over time. Spray again 48 hours later and see if more are on the ground. Sawdust will probably still be evident on the ground. After spraying again then fill the hole(s) with most any caulk. It's still possible some will remain in the wood, but likely they will be dead since you have sealed the easy escape hole(s) and flooded their home. Note that Carpenter Bees tend to show up and return to the same place annually so the review saying they returned is not because the product didn't work but that these bees were not there when you first applied the fluid. Keep checking and spray if you see any new holes to prevent a female from laying eggs. It's only the male which hovers around the wood. They like bare untreated wood. The male looks scary but cannot sting you. Only the female can sting and she is inside the nest. I hope this helps you.
