I have a couple of Carpenter bee nests in my porch roof rafters that I need to remove. My plan, as it is now, is to treat the rafters with a bee repellent (citri-fresh, NBS30 or some other natural repellent) and provide sacrificial wood like pieces of pine to let them nest in. I don't want to kill the bees, and I want them to stay -- just not in any structural wood. I also want to treat the inside of the laundry room with wasp repellent to discourage wasps from making nests in there. The laundry room is a shed that houses the washer and dryer separate from the main house.
Now, my question is, will the repellent affect my anoles? I have anoles all over the porch -- on the deck, in the rafters, in and around the plants. Any given time during the day, I can walk outside and spot a half a dozen of them. They also live in and around the laundry shed. I want them to stay. Will the repellents send them scurrying away?
