We have a friend who discovered powderpost beetles in their wainscoting on a plaster wall around their fireplace. The wainscoting is painted. Is there a product to treat/kill the beetles over painted wood? The insect control technician who diagnosed the problem said products to treat/kill the PPDs in the wood such as Boracare wouldn't be effective since the wood is painted. Tenting the home at approximately $30,000 is not financially feasible for our retired friends. What can they do?

I have powderpost beetles in some of my ash wood trim and door frames. Several trim pieces are severely damaged and I intend to replace them. Can I remove and treat the back side of the trim with minimal exit holes and the nearby undamaged trim? The home is 5 years old, but I had been seeing the powder on the floor around the infected wood since the home was a year or so old. Since the door frames are harder to remove, can I drill several holes and use the gel formula on the frames? Thanks.

We have a wooden TV Console that has several worm holes with dust around the holes. We have learned that Rooms To Go imports their furniture and the federal government 'requires' the furniture be treated, but there have been instances of untreated furniture being imported to the U.S.

I restore old dolls and recently started working on a project were the the legs and arms are turned wood; probably pine. Unfortuneatly there is evidence of powderpost beetles have been present. What is the life cycle; can freezing the items kill off what may still be there? I am not sure that using products that you recommend will not harm the finish on the old doll parts so am concerned with how to handle.

Friends bought a cabinet from Walmart (from China) and one of the support pieces has evidence of woodworm. In six months, it has gotten worse with over 20 exit holes and telltale "talcum" powder-like dust piles. What should they do?

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 think are dead powder post beetles in a basket below with sawdust.  My question is this:  I would like to treat this decorative piece of 50 year old grapewood with all of its interesting holes, etc.  I just want to ensure that I can get rid of its current inhabitants for good.  What would you use to treat this?

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 of days ago. Will those freezing temps kill the bug and any larvae? the thickest pieces are about an inch.
