Powderpost Beetle Control in Orange Co. & San Diego
What Are Powderpost Beetles?
Powderpost beetles are insects that lay their eggs in cracks of wood. The larvae tunnel into the surface, filling it with a very fine powder-like dust. Powderpost beetles have long, narrow, flat bodies that allow them to easily attack wood surfaces. These beetles are reddish-brown in color. Adult powderpost beetles are very active at night, enjoy flying and are attracted to the light. Powderpost beetles often attack hardwoods, and can be found in hardwood floors, timbers and crates, and other objects made of hardwood materials. Some researchers believe that powderpost beetles are second only to termites in the United States in their destructiveness to wood and wood products.
Powderpost Beetle Treatment & Control
If you are seeing damaged wood items in your home or office, we will send a Griffin Pest Management technician to inspect the source of the problem. Once the source is determined, our technician will recommend a treatment tailored to your needs and budget. This may include a spot treatment of locally applied low-toxicity pesticide into the infested wood items. If the infestation is large enough, we may also recommend a fumigation. If you’d like more information about our Powderpost beetle treatments, please call Griffin Pest Management today.
