I bought some 8/4 x 10 hit/miss red oak to smooth up and use in furniture but had to store it in my garage for a year.  Found the dust, then the 3/32 holes along most of the edges, but also on some surfaces where contact was complete.  Now I'm wondering if the larvae reside in the hole where the bug  exited. If so, which product could I use on them?  I don't want to stain the oak so am wondering if the products leave some apparent mark of treatment.
