How to Get Rid of False Powder Post Beetles

How to Get Rid of False Powder Post Beetles

As central air conditioning and heating offer more controlled environments in homes, serious powder post infestations, even by more damaging lyctid and anobiid powder post beetles, are less likely to occur. However, some false powder post infestations are caused by bringing infested wood into your home, in furniture and firewood.

Homeowners with moisture-prone wood and damp spaces, such as crawlspaces, are advised to regularly check these areas and ventilate crawlspaces as wood-boring insect and termite prevention measures.

If you actually see false powder post beetles in your home, or telltale piles of powdery sawdust, or “frass,” around tiny holes in your home’s wood, you might have a false powder post beetle infestation. Due to the vast variety of wood boring insects that could be infesting your home, homeowners are advised to contact a trusted pest control company to identify and form an elimination plan for these not so common household pests.

Freezing temperatures will eliminate powder post beetles in furniture, provided you have access to a large walk-in freezer for a two-week period. However, in your home, false powder post beetles may be challenging to locate, with most effective control techniques and treatments available only through industry professionals. Do yourself and your home a favor: Contact your local Truly Nolen location to schedule a free pest inspection today!
