Sirs, Great how to videos. Clearly this is for us. I am estimating that we would need 3 gallons to do our whole house outside. Since I would order a case, 4 gallons, I am wondering if the product would last unused for another 3-5 years until we redo it? If so, would it last […]

We built a house 4 years ago and purchased some handhewn beams taken from an old barn.  They were supposedly treated before we received them.  After receiving them, we had them stained and put in our great room.  Over the past few months I have noticed evidence of beetles.  My question is can Bora care […]

My house is 9 years old and has an unfinished basement.  We heat our home with a “wood furnace”, and do keep some wood inside during the winter.  I started to notice the fine powder piles a year ago.  I have done much research about the “beetles”.  But the one thing I cant figure out […]

I have a decorative grapewood display on my wall and today I found a larva of some sort beneath it, evidently had fallen out. I looked at the branch directly above it and there were 3 holes.  The larva was about 3/4 inch long, off-whitish with a wide head, very puffy.  I found what I […]

I have  a pecan table I just recently purchased that shows signs of active powder post beetle. The builder of the table is cooperative. He tried boric acid, but that didn’t do the trick. I’m in TX and we’re experiencing a number of days of below freezing temps. I put the table outside a couple […]

I have recently been given some old lumber that was part of the framing structure of a barn. I have various sizes of lumber ranging from 2″x6″ to 6″x6″ and others which I plan to use for furniture and cabinets and such. The wood is filled with beetle holes and I am not sure if […]

I am pretty sure I have powder post beetles in my couch. What is the best way to get rid of them without damaging the fabric. This is a tough one. No doubt fumigation would be the “cleanest” method. But as our POWDERPOST BEETLE CONTROL article explains, this is very expensive and generally not a […]

I have a large wooden beverage bar (@7ft tall, 3’3″ wide and 2 foot wide with shelves and an open front with iron-laced doors) that has evidence of the noted beetles (I have powder residue appearing at the glue seams of the piece in a few locations).  One pest control company suggested over the phone […]

I just bought an antique buffet in an antique mall.  It is by far one of the favorite pieces I have collected.  I bought it in May-ish, and it was in the owner’s (of the mall) garage all summer. I do not remember any holes when I bought it and I looked it over pretty […]

I am considering buying a very old (1840) log cabin that has been added on to over the years so that it is semi-invisible and more looking like a farm house. I saw old termite cases and asked for a pest inspector to check it.  He has found powderpost beetle damage in the basement.  I […]

I do woodwork and have some lumber with powder post beetle infestation. I have used some off the shelf / Ortho ant and termite treatment that was effective but after a few years they are back. My shed is against the woods and the West Virginia DNR indicated there is no real escape. I do […]
