Is there a possibility of relocating carpenter bees once trapped in a carpenter bee trap - as seen on YouTube?

Carpenter bees are difficult to relocate. Once in the trap the bees may not survive. See our publication for the best ways to prevent carpenter bee damage to your home. Carpenter bees do not eat wood. They eat flower nectar and pollen. The holes they bore into are nests made for their young.
