Flat Headed or Round-Headed Wood Borers- Look for small oval shaped holes in the log or timber. Also, bores lay in small pits in the bark. We have found there are two types of wood borers found in log and timber homes, known as round head and flathead wood bores. Their eggs hatch in 2 to 4 weeks. These borers feed deep into the wood as it dries, boring deeper into logs and timber. The life cycle is usually 1 to 2 years, but the larvae may feed up to seven years, if the wood moisture is low. If you are building a new log home, it is recommended to have kiln dried logs treated with Tim-Bor or Pene-Treat. Both products are the same though Tim-Bor is less expensive and can be purchased from Log-Pro
Powerpost beetles prefer unheated areas. Their size is about 1/8″ to 5/16″. We have found them in seasonal homes. They prefer sapwood of ring-porous and diffuseporous hardwoods with a high starch content. The tell tail sign is a small pile of fine brown flour-like wood material. We recommend for treatment Bora-Care, or Tim-Bor and Bug Juice. Call Log-Pro to order product
If you find that your log or timber home has a moisture problem or one side is always wet or damp, look for ants. Carpenter ants are large and black in color. You may want to follow them and see where they are leading you too. They can enter your home by way of vegetation that overhangs or touches the home. Be sure to keep all trees or shrubs cut back from your home. Keep moisture from your home and treat area with Tim-Bor or Bora-Care. When staining, use Bug Juice as a deterrent.
