Anyone else tried this?
Carpenter bees have infested my wood framed barns to the point of structural damage.
I loaded 444 marlin cases with 2 grains of green dot , a 410 wad and about 35 grains of hard white rice in a 45/410. This makes a dandy load for wingshooting the bugs out to almost 20 feet. Today I shot 9 with eleven tries. The trick is to catch them relatively still for a second .
This is fun and fairly cheap. Try it if you have a carpenter bee problem. G66
