We’re all aware of the problems termites pose, especially in the southern states, and how they can cause hundreds of millions of dollars of damage to the U.S. homes each year. The Powder Post Beetle is a wood-destroying insect second only to termites in their damaging effects. Typical damage of Powder Post Beetles can vary from unpleasant holes in a wood surface to significant wood destructions.
Similar to termites, severe infestations of Powder Post Beetles can cause the homeowners to spend thousands of dollars in repair costs. But unfortunately, their damage is not usually detected until people start to see fine sawdust particles and small exit holes where adult beetles have emerged.
In order to effectively manage Powder Post Beetles and other wood-destroying beetles, pesticides with high penetration capability and extended residual longevity must be implemented prior to or at the first sign of Powder Post Beetle activity.
Currys will do a thorough inspection of your home’s structure and determine if the environment will support Powder Post Beetles and if any activity is observed. If so, then a treatment plan will be proposed and put into action.
