B-B gun and a six pack. On a serious side, I use malathion and mix it heavy (double) and spray at dusk. Works pretty well for me.

Or would that be a Bee Begone? :)
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

If whatever brand bee/wasp killer isn't doing the job...as terrible as this sounds BRAKE CLEANER (like you'd buy at Napa in the aeresol cans) will drop them mid-flight. It's the only thing I found that will kill them other than smooshing them individually.

Wait till evening and look for all the little holes they "drill" in the wood and caulk them up with the bees in them....:)
You keep telling yourself that and one of these days even you will believe it.
