I just noticed a lot of brown powder coming out of my 120 year old cross beams. I know it has not been there over a month. But a lot of structural damage has been done already. I have been researching on line and it appears to be Powderpost Beetles. 2 of my cross beams have been affected. They are being bored through but I don’t see any bugs. Any advice? I put some boric acid in the holes in powder form and am going to mix it with water tomorrow and spray it on. I have heard orange oils helps also but I am not sure what to do with it.

Sorry I don’t know the answer to your question. Let me suggest that you post the question on the forums here as they get a lot more readers than individual profiles/pages do.
Good luck
