Zskaka98 from Clay, Ky 42404 writes,

Can this product be used on finished hardwood floors and cabinets

I can't believe the damage these beetles have done to my home. Idk how or where they came from but it appears I have wood boring and carpet beetles. I have been fighting cloth moths for a year. Used a professional pest control company that would come in and out so quick I could see they weren't using enough chemicals, after 5 months I had to let him go. I've lost most of my clothes, linens and some furniture, now I have got panty moths. I've spent thousands and seems all I do is laundry and clean, can't eat for fear of eggs and larvae. My car is infested too, i'm really hanging by a thread, these things have robed me from my life. Please advise me to the products I need, my house is quite large 2 story, Several rooms are not used, just storage. I think maybe trying to salvage some clothes and furniture is the why they took over. I would appreciate any advise you have for me, i'm so tired I feel like quiting and sell out, but know I'll take em with me. Desperate......Kathy


Totality Wood Treatment is intended to be applied only to bare wood, plywood, particle board or other cellulose building materials in the absense of paint, stains or sealers. Such materials will prevent Totality Wood Treatment from properly adhering to cellulose surfaces. Unfortunately, we are not aware of a product that will treat wood that has been painted, stained, or sealed in any way. The only effective means of control boring beetles would be to said the finish off and then apply the Totality Wood Treatment. As for the Carpet Beetles we would recommend reading our Carpet Beetle Control article and take a look at the Nyguard Plus. Apply with a sweeping motion as a surface spray to carpet, rugs, closets, baseboards, upholstered furniture, and around edges of carpet.
