Hi, I live on a 65′ old boat in San Francisco. We lately found out that we have powerpost beeltes. They were in the ceiling. We had a pest control agent come inspect, and he said we should fumigate, for a cost of $5,000. This seems too high, so I was hoping to do this […]

I think I might have powderpost beetles in my RV. How would I treat my RV and do these things bite humans. First, the easy question to answer: I’m not aware of anyone getting bit by a powderpost beetle. Now could it happen? Most definitely. Adults have chewing mouth parts used to bore their way […]
