If the nests (holes) are easily within your reach you can treat the areas yourself. If not, hire a pest control service. Here is a website that explains carpenter bees and their management. The are difficult to eradicate, but can be controlled. http://ento.psu.edu/extension/factsheets/carpenter-bees
