wooden icon frame with powder post beetles

Hi, my project is related to an antique wooden icon frame, size 12×16 inch.. I suspect it has powder post beetles living in it. Boracare looks like the ideal treatment as the frame is untreated. I do not need 1gallon of Boracare. Does it come in smaller quantities?
Sorry but no, BORACARE does not come in anything smaller than a gallon.

Alternatively you can get some PEST STRIPS and fumigate the piece. This process will take 4 weeks but for small pieces, will usually kill all stages. Basically you’ll need a plastic bag large enough to fit the frame. Inside the frame you’ll place a strip of this product which uses vapona for an active. Vapona will penetrate through the wood and kill off any active stage. Let the bag sit for 4 weeks and afterwards the wood should be purged from all insect activity.
Unfortunately it won’t kill the eggs so if you can leave it in the bag for 2 months, that would be best to insure you kill everything. But in general, 4 weeks is usually long enough.
