Homes that are in or near the tree line or that have chronic moisture issues may be susceptible to various wood infesting beetles.
The least you need to know about these insects.
- In nature, beetles take advantage of vulnerable trees. If these are then used as structural limber, we may encounter an infestation.
- The larval stage of the beetle will do all of the damage.
- Given appropriate conditions, beetles may continue to infest and damage wooden elements.
- Correction of conditions that encourage beetle activity is the first step in stopping the problem.
