Question:


Problem with false powderpost beetle infestation in the half log siding on my home. The structure is 2 by 6 frame with insulation, logs on outside. If I do nothing about the beetles, will they infest the whole struture or only the logs?

Answer:

They could get into the whole structure. You will need to strip the log siding and treat with a borate then re-stain. If it isn't real expensive siding it may be cheaper to just install new, but i would treat the new with borate if that is that route you take.
