Question:


It seems that we have powder post beetles on a 4 ft. siding of our house and on the base of one of the pedalstals on the front porch.It has been recommended by a pest control that we use fumigation, but I really don't want to do that.Isn't there another alternative that we can try especially since it is localized?

Answer:

The other alternative is to remove all the finish back to bare wood and apply a liberal application of Shell Guard borate treatment from Perma Chink.
