How to Identify a Powderpost Beetle
Reddish brown, with long, narrow, flat bodies; 1/8 to 1/4″.
Powderpost beetles live in hardwood floors, timbers, crates, antique furniture and other objects made from hardwoods. They lay their eggs in cracks in the wood and the larvae tunnel up to the surface, filling the pinhole tunnels with a very fine powder-like dust. Powderpost beetles are considered by some experts to be second to termites in the United States in their destructiveness to wood and wood products.
