Powderpost beetles love the ring porous hardwoods like oak. The only way to get rid of them 100% sure is to heat the wood to an internal temp above 135 degrees for several hours.

If you use timbor, it will prevent any re-infestation. However, the eggs and larvae currently in the wood will not be affected by the surface borate treatment and can emerge as much as 3-5 years later. Don’t ask me how I know this…......
