Can I use CB PCO Fogger to eliminate powderpost beetles in our kitchen cabinets?


No, CB PCO Fogger or other bug bombs will not penetrate into cabinets and kill powder post beetles.  Bug Bombs only go straight up into the air and fall down through the air onto surfaces.  They will only kill what insects are out in the open when the bomb goes off.  Powderpost beetle larvae are not out in the open like other insects, they are deep inside the wood of the cabinet.  Unfortunately, the only method of eradicating powder post beetles is either fumigation which can only be performed by a professional company, or you can apply a wood treatement product we carry called Bora-Care, but it requires sanding off the finish of the cabinet.
