Powder post Beetle are the most common types of wood borers found in India. It is tiny flying insect, reddish brown to black in color with slightly hairy complexion mainly attacking the dry, unfinished hardwood.
There are mainly three types of powder post beetles belonging to important families of Wood Boring Beetles :
Lyctidae - These are known as true powder post beetles.
Bostrichidae - These are referred to as false powder post beetles, bamboo borers, or even lead-cable borers.
Anobiidae - These are popularly known as Deathwatch Beetles.
These boring beetles attacks only hardwood which is dry, untreated with chemicals and rich in starch - oak, ash, walnut, mahogany, rubber wood.
The powder post beetle mostly attack newly constructed properties and recently manufactured hardwood used for framing work, cabinet furniture and woodwork like door, window frame, wardrobe, wooden paneling, wall false ceiling, flooring.
The tiny beetle are not found in old timber due to low starch content and do not infest structural wood as these tend to be made from softwood.
The larvae of powder post beetle produce dust-like frass having consistency of flour or talcum powder. So, if you notice slightly yellow colored powder falling from furniture, it indicates powder post beetle infestation.
The wood boring beetles are most active around March-April and become less active from November onwards.
You may find creamy white colored wood borer larvae curve-shaped.
Look for round or oval shaped, pin sized exit holes in the wood from which the adult beetle emerged. The flight holes size can range from 2mm to 4mm.
Small Wood dust or frass (woodworm droppings) below the infested wood. This bore dust may have fallen from the exit holes creating small piles on the floor or surfaces below the wood.
In case the dust or frass reappears within few weeks of cleanup indicates an active wood borer infestation.
Crumbling wood around the corners or floorboard edges.

These kinds of borers can destroy wooden pallets, crates, or shipping carts; firewood; and household wooden items such as picture frames, broom handles, bamboo and bamboo products, wicker baskets and furniture, carved wooden art objects, wooden artifacts, decorative driftwood, wooden furniture, and wood paneling. The adults of some of these species also burrow into soft metals, plaster, and plastic.
The other wood pests, instead of attacking harvested wood, feed on living, dying, diseased, burned, damaged, or dead trees. These wood eating insects creates problem when the adults emerge from wood in new construction or are carried indoors in firewood.
Thoroughly check the timber and wood products while buying so that you are not bringing already infested wood.
Make sure the wood is air-dried and does not contain any amount of moisture.
Before using the wood get it sprayed with chemicals.
Reduce moisture inside the home with proper ventilation, drainage, and dehumidifiers.
Any highly infested wood should be burned so that infestation does not spread to healthy wood.
In case of storing firewood, keep them far away from wooden structure or your home.
The term wood borer comprises of several families of wood boring beetles, whose larvae or adult form eats and destroy wood and wood products. These wood eating insects destroy structural and furniture wood based on the type and moisture content of the wood. All natural wood used in construction is at risk to wood borer infestation.
Wood boring beetle adults lay eggs in the cracks and crevices of wooden objects, floorboard, timbers or any other expose wood.
Once these eggs hatch, larvae of the beetle burrow through the wood which is why it is hard to notice them.
In order to grow, the larvae needs sugar starch, so it feeds on wood for several years and create a maze of tunnels in the process which eventually cause structural damage to your property.
When the larva matures and increases in size, it bore towards wood surface to pupate and develop into adults.
Adults then emerge from the wood by eating its way out of the timber creating tiny pin size holes in the wood.
So, the tiny holes you see on wood surface are basically the exit holes or flight holes signifying that the beetle has left.
