Great forum! We have a log home that has powder post beetles. I see some evidence of dust and tiny holes. Not a lot. We will be treating with Boracare soon. Do you think it would be wise to retreat in about three to six months? Thank you so much Log Doctor!

Unless you strip the logs back to bare wood before you apply the Boracare, you are wasting your money. The borate must soak into the wood fiber so that when the beetles bore in and digest the wood it kills them. Just spraying it on the stain will not work.
