Question:


We have a tongue and groove log sided house. The interior walls are tongue and groove also. I have noticed black "blobs" about 1 foot wide on an interior wall. Could this be mold? And where would it be coming from? The only thing I can figure is that there are a few wood bee holes on the outside, but they are probably 6 feet away from the black spots. How would I treat this?

Answer:

If it is mold you will have to sand and restain if possible. If it is Carpenter Bees, they will travel several feet down the walls in any direction. They could have built a nest and it could be leaking through the wood.
