Question:


I have a barn with an infestation of powder post beetles in the beams. The barn is whitewashed. How can I get rid of them? If I would drill small, say 1/2 inch holes every foot or so along the beam, say 1/2 inch deep and put a borate solution in to soak, would this do it?

Thanks.

Answer:

They do make borate rods that you can drills holes and insert into the wood. I'm not sure how effective they eill be in dry barn wood. Call Timeless Wood Care at 800-564-2987 to buy them.
