Q: We have owned a small yet beautiful log home as a second home for about six years, and we are experiencing wood bees on our front porch that are boring holes into our logs, mostly the posts on the porch. What can we do to prevent further damage? Not only do we have deep holes, but also the bees are large and annoying, and they are leaving wood shavings all over the rails and floor of the porch. Your input would be helpful.
