    You can buy carpenter bee traps at home depot or Lowes , but you need to put the near where the bees are going . You already said that is too high to reach...either you need to get a ladder and put up the traps along with filling in underneath the eves? We're they are getting in . This is important to get rid of them they can damage your home , like termites... If you can't do it, you should hire a service ! Good luck !!!

    What I have done in the past is use a wasp and hornet spray. Shoots up to 25+ feet. Wait till after dusk when they are dormant. After you spray keep an eye out if you see more. If not then you need to remove the nest somehow or more bees will use it.. The hole is just a doorway. Then plug the hole up with a wood dowel or wood putty. Caulk will not work. They can dig right through it.
