I was cleaning out and putting away my chritmas ornaments, and found some native american drum ornaments, wood with cellulose drum faces, destroyed by some kind of beetle. The casings of the pupas were there, a live beetle, and lots of fine powder. The drum ornaments were from china. They were in my attic crawl space in a cardboard box. I thew them all away and the box, but do i have to worry about the attic being infested? The drum ornaments were unfinished wood, which they seemed to like. The ornaments were sitting in the attic for a few years.
