Wood borers (Powder Post Beetles) are tiny beetles whose larvae feed extensively on the wood. The wood worms while emerging make tiny pin size holes on the surface of wooden furniture or fixture. Those tiny holes which you see on wood surface are actually the exit -holes where the adult wood borer has left. The fine yellowish colored powder (Yellow Dust) starts appearing from these tiny holes.
Wood borers feed on the cell contents of the sapwood. While feeding they make tunnels and pupate within the wood. Borers or Powder Post Beetles attack partially or fully seasoned wood with 10-15% moisture. (i.e almost dry condition). Wood borers invade and damage structural and furniture wood based on the type and moisture content of the wood. All homes or businesses constructed of natural wood are at risk to wood borer infestations.
