Powder post beetles. Milled it up about a year ago & pulled it out today.

Let this be a lesson to everyone who buys lumber from a sawmill. You have to kiln dry it.

Duh…..

I think your kiln may be running a little hot. I’d suggest turning it down a few notches or you risk a fire. Seriously what areas of the country are prone to this issue? I have heard of it but never seen it. Can exterminators detect it early and treat it?

At least you could cook a BBQ in that kitchen.

I love the smell of popping beetles in the morning.

Seriously you could hear them popping.

I’ve got a couple hundred BF of that poplar left up in racks.

@LBD when that goes up, I’ll be smoking a turkey.

my dad lived in southern oregon and had about 25 coffee table sized slabs of mrytle wood,when he passed i was gonna bring em down but everyone was infested with powder post beetles,there were piles of flour like dust all over.that was a very sad waste of some beautiful wood.
