Powder post beetles?
Hi folks, for years I have had bits of insulation and what appears to be bug parts come from the ceiling vents!
I have asked on this forum to no avail.
I have asked my dealer numerous times about it. I always get a, "never heard of it!"
Doing research tonight I came upon articles on 'powder post beetles'!
Looks like that's what I have!
The information I am getting says they can lay dormant in wood for years before hatching!
Has anyone else had this issue, and if so what was the solution where Forest River was concerned?
2006 Flagstaff TT.
Thanks in advance!

Would be nice to have some pics if possible. I'm in the pest control business and can maybe help you but identification is the key. Also is the "frass" coming out like talc powder?? Also body parts, color, are there wings, legs etc. let me know. We get many RV's that have dry wood termites and or powder post beetles.
