I have lots of otherwise beautiful maple for making furniture but the powder post beetles are obvious. Should I just scrap it and use it as firewood or is there any possibility of salvaging it? Any suggestions will be much appreciated by this novice woodworker. Many thanks. Marv

I have a wood table and cabinet with round headed borers. I took the wood off my lot. A couple of trees were damaged during a storm and they were perfect for this furniture so used them not realizing the borers were still alive or active. Now I'm seeing exit holes and sawdust and I'm afraid my house is getting infested. Do I need to burn these pieces or can I save them somehow? And what about trees that are infested? Is there anyway of treating them too?

We bought some antiques from Europe /somewhere that appeared to have Pbeetles in them. Last year I treated the dresser with BORA-CARE both interior and exterior quite heavily. This spring we have had about 30 of the adults found around it on the floor. Is this because they are dying as they come out or are they dying after they re-infest the dresser.

Hi, I have small holes in my antique furniture. Will your jecta gel do the job? Will it have any effect on the walnut finish? Do I need to use this outside or also inside the furniture???
