When dealing with carpenter bees, I've learned that although caulking the holes is more visually appealing, it's really not practical. Any new-comer carpenter bees will first explore holes that already exist, and if none, then will start boring out a new one. If a long lasting insecticide is used on the original hole, then the bees that explore that hole will come in contact with it, and kill those bees as well. As the owner of a log home - this has drastically reduced the number of holes... and bees, that I need to be concerned.
