I am looking at buying a panabode house and the people that have been renting it said there was a problem with ‘wood roaches’ and they have the house sprayed with a pestiside every 3 months! Is this normal? Do all log houses have this problem? Is there any way to get rid of them completely? Thank you and hope to hear back soon, Susanne

Not sure what ”Wood Roaches” are. If they are talking about Powder Post Beetles or Old House Bore it will need to be stripped and have a borate solution applied before re-staining.
