Question:


I am looking at buying a panabode house and the people that have been renting it said there was a problem with 'wood roaches' and they have the house sprayed with a pestiside every 3 months! Is this normal? Do all log houses have this problem? Is there any way to get rid of them completely? Thank you and hope to hear back soon, Susanne

Answer:

Not sure what "Wood Roaches" are. If they are talking about Powder Post Beetles or Old House Bore it will need to be stripped and have a borate solution applied before re-staining. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old-house_borer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powderpost_beetle
