Weapons of Carpenter Bee Destruction
available at the Forsythia Festival
The Forsythia Festival will be here soon and MP SkillsUSA students will be selling WCBDs; Weapons of Carpenter Bee Destruction. 
It's a one room model with plenty of ingress and just the right amount of egress to keep the 
CBs comfortable in the spacious, yet fatal, solarium on the basement level. 
A Western Red Cedar roof adds the country charm that all Carpenter Bees are looking for.  All WCBDs come with a removable solarium (one-pint Mason jar) for the catch-and-release customers and a nice note asking that the CBs not be released in Monroe County. Best of all, these proven 
CB-Getters are only $10 and the money raised goes back to the students of MP SkillsUSA.
