Question:


We discovered a boring beetle worm inside the beams of one room in our cabin - built around 1956. We heard the gnawing inside the beam and dug it out. It has since spread through to the next room. One suggestion was tenting the home to get rid of it. The home is now empty and I would like to get rid of them. What can we do?

Answer:

The best option would be to strip the old finish off and apply a borate treatment and then re-stain.
