new construction powder post beetles
2 1/2 months ago I sold a builder pre-finished bamboo flooring for 2 homes. The homes are now complete and on the market. 1 home has 3 boards that are pretty bad, mutliple holes and dust. I cleaned last friday and found more this morning. How do I know if it is coming from my flooring or from something else and going into my flooring? Also, I have another 4000sf of this producgt in my warehouse. Can it spread to other products in my warehouse? FYI: i live in the Outerbanks of North Carolina if this means anything
Without careful examination by a professional, it is difficult to determine whether the pest is coming from the floor or from something else going into the flooring.
We suggest you treat the floors with Boracare. Also, you can spray around the areas with Cy-kick to try and prevent further spreading to the other products. Powder post beetles can spread to other wood items.
