    A friend used to do that with wasps and an air pistol, but I usually waited until they landed. When that got "too easy" we backed up a couple more steps and started over.

    That was amazing! [applaud] You are quite talented with the sling shot. How long have you been shooting one?

    Carpenter bees are very good pollinators for your fruit and vegetables. If they have suitable housing they won't attack your structures so much. just saying.

    Perhaps you could entice them to move, to a better site near your flowers or garden. Some woods are more to thier liking and bare wood is a target, so paint helps. Maybe add a raw wood post post or flower box near the garden edge for them.
