Question:


My wife and I just recently prchased a log home in NE Wisconsin. When I went up this weekend I noticed flying termite going in and out of small piholes. It is only on one area of the home. the interior of the home is solid as I tapped around every log, however on the outside you can hear the dullness of it near these holes. Can it be repaired barring the complete replacement. Can the termites be exterminated?

Answer:

Sounds like Powder Post Beetles. You will probably have to strip at least those logs and apply a borate treatment.
