log home with powder post beetles


I was very excited to find your site with all of the useful information and plan on buying some products shortly but need to be clear on something.

I have a question about powder post beetles. If a log home has an emergence of powder post beetles and the logs have been sealed with stain or poly, what is the best way of treating this situation or is there nothing you can do?

If you read through our POWDERPOST BEETLE CONTROL article, you’ll learn the best product for treating wood is the BORACARE. But you’ll also learn the wood needs to be unfinished in order for the Boracare to penetrate. So if the logs you want to treat are sealed, you’ll need to pressure wash off the sealant prior to treating.
