Powder Post Beetles, also known as Wood Boring Beetles, are a rather rare pest for most areas of the country. However, there are several factors that make them a troublesome and irritating pest, not to mention a couple of traits that can lead to rather serious damage in your home.

Most people only think of pests such as termites when it comes to bugs that can eat through and destroy wood. However, there are a large number of pests that can be equally damaging and have to be dealt with in their own specific ways. One of these wood destroying pests is the Powderpost Beetle. These are one of the least known of the insects that feed on wood, but that doesn’t make them any less dangerous or potentially destructive.

Here at Do My Own Pest Control you are sure to find every product you will need to deal with this wood eating menace, as well as unlimited free expert advice on how to get rid of them.

3 Simple Steps To Controlling Powder Post Beetles

1.    Treat The Wood In Your Home

Because Powder Post Beetles (Wood Beetles) survive by eating through and digesting wood, one of the best ways to get rid of them is by treating the wood in your home with any of the approved wood treatment products such as Bora-Care or Timbor. This will make the wood indigestible to the insects by inhibiting the natural enzymes that are required to properly digest the fibers contained in the wood. This means that although the beetles might eat a small amount of the wood that has been treated, they will not be back to continue eating through it. These products also provide great protection against termites and any other bugs that might be a threat to the wood that makes up your home.

2.    Make Sure To Keep Everything Dry

Powder post beetles, and indeed most wood eating insects thrive in damp areas. This can be a serious condition not only because of the insects but also because these same damp conditions can encourage the growth of other wood destroying problems such as mold. Therefore, if you want to protect your home you should aim to remove as much moisture as possible from the wood that makes up its frame.

3.    Apply The Appropriate Pesticides

Even if you diligently follow the first two steps, you are still likely to need a topical pesticide to get rid of Powder Post Beetles. Luckily, these bugs are not known to be resistant to any of the pesticides that are commonly used against them, so it should be a simple matter to treat the infestation. Generally speaking, any pesticide that is approved to treat termites will also work on powder post beetles. All products listed above on this page are labeled to treat Powder Post Beetles.
