Westside Pest Control technician Mike Londry recently inspected a home for issues with a wood boring insect. Upon close inspection, the beetles had been slowly compromising the structural integrity of the home for many decades.
In this case, major renovation work will be required to treat the powder posts beetles. Not great news for the home owner but better than a collapsing floor.
Powder post beetles can often be mistaken for termites or carpenter ants. Fine sawdust and/or holes in wood frames such as doorways are often a first clue. If you suspect you have an infestation, contact us and we would be happy to provide a free estimate.
