Bug JuiceStain Additive is an odorless insecticide designed to eliminate crawling and flying insects ranging from ants to mosquitoes and cockroaches to silverfish. Bug Juice stain additive is a contact pesticide that begins to work after an insect makes contact with the treated finish. Use on interior and exterior surfaces, including kitchens and pantries.
|Bug Juice Stain Additive has not been tested on Carpenter Bees by the manufacturer. Because the insecticide in Bug Juice takes 1-3 hours to work once it is in the insect's system, it may kill the first bee that starts boring, but once a hole is started there is no protection from other bees that continue to expand on the hole. If you are looking for a paint additive to deter Carpenter Bees, use NBS 30.
