Did you know that along with termites, carpenter ants and carpenter bees, there is a beetle that eats wood as well?
The powderpost beetle is named for its ability to reduce wood into nothing but dust.
They feed on hardwood and softwood, alike. Powderpost beetles thrive on starch and find wood as their main source of food.
These beetle also lay their eggs in dry wood like decks or furniture.
Signs of an infestation could be small holes or a fine powder of saw dust. Because the signs of a powderpost beetle infestation are so similar to other wood damaging insects, it is best to call for an inspection to determine the correct method of pest control.
