Powder Post Beetle Control
"Powder post beetle" is a term that is applied to a number of different wood-destroying beetle species: Lyctidae, Bostrichidae, Anobiidae and Cerambycidae. They are smaller than 1/4" in size. Powder post beetles are wood-boring insects that reduce wood to a fine powder-like substance. Adults do little damage. It is the larvae (woodworms) that do the majority of the the damage. Infestations are typically discovered after noticing small, round holes in wood surfaces.
