Powder Post Beetles are usually burrowing into homes from furniture usually sourced from Asia. We’ve seen them in everything from high end doors sourced from China, to Balinese furniture, bamboo mats, candlesticks, and other wood ornamental products made in Polynesia.
These destructive pests can stay dormant for years, and then come out all of a sudden, showing up as small holes in the wood with very fine, flour-like frass, but finer than termite droppings.
Powder Post Beetle Treatments
Just to give you an idea of how tough these guys are to exterminate, it takes 10 times the amount of Vikane gas to kill powder post beetles as it does to kill dry wood termites. In comparison, bedbugs take 2 times, and rodents only 1/2 that amount!
Although we do have other products available for the treatment of powder post beetles, we often recommend vault fumigation to completely irradiate these pests. For a free, no obligation quote and consultation, call us today at 808-737-2847 and talk to our powder post beetle specialists.
