We can get you back to zero.

How to Protect Against Powderpost Beetles

You can have the wood you are using to build a home fumigated to get rid of all the pests including powderpost beetles before you start building. That’s the only way to prevent them – and the major damage they can do – from the start.

Powderpost beetles got that name because they reduce wood to a flour-like powder. They lay their eggs inside the tunnels they have created in the wood. When the larvae hatch, they feed on the wood around them, creating tunnels as they go. Those tunnels and eventually, their exit holes, can weaken the wood and eventually your home’s internal structure.

  • Lay eggs inside the wood
  • Eat their way out leaving tunnels
  • Weaken the wood framing of your home

How Western Fumigation helps

Fumigation is a process that pests can’t hide from. It will penetrate deep into the wood eliminating the pests and their larvae. We will tent your home and we don’t leave when the tent comes off, we clear the home of any pesticides and then – and only then – the job is officially done.
