Effective & Hassle-Free Powderpost Beetle Elimination
Powderpost beetles are wood-destroyers. Specifically, they damage seasoned wood used to build houses and furniture. Their name comes from the fine, flour-like powder the larvae turn wood into. Like termites and other wood-destroying pests, powderpost beetles can cause dangerous damage to a home’s structure, making it unsafe for the people that live there. Fortunately, if you are a local resident, you can get effective and hassle-free powderpost beetle elimination from our expert team at Encon, LLC.
How We Can Help With Powderpost Beetles
The most common way powderpost beetles get into a home is by entering the lumber used to build it during the storing and curing process. Only later will they emerge and start to damage the wood. These pests are also attracted to wood that contains high moisture, so older buildings, especially outbuildings like sheds, are common places for them to infest. But, powderpost beetles won’t only go after damaged or dead wood but also the new lumber you purchase.
What makes these pests worse is they can live inside the wood for up to five years before the larvae turn into adults, going unnoticed the whole time they are doing damage.
