Question:


Our pine (fresh cut) log shed has consistent sized wood shavings (3/8" long x 1/16" in diameter collecting in a couple of places. We also hear chewing. We see no obvious holes but do see the shavings below the noisy areas.

Answer:

Not sure where you are but it is probably Powder Post Beetle or Old House Bore. It will need to be borate treated (wood has to be bare, no stain). Go to this link for more info. http://www2.ca.uky.edu/entomology/entfacts/ef616.asp
