Anobiid Powderpost Beetles
Anobiid powderpost beetles are usually about 1/16 to 1/4 inch long, reddish brown or grayish brown to dark brown.
Most commonly, infestations of Anobiid powderpost beetles are found in structural timbers made of softwood, such as beams, sills, joists, studs, subflooring, and plywood. In addition, Anobiids will infest hardwood furniture, wall paneling, window and door molding, hardwood floors, and furniture. Woods such as maple, beech, poplar, and pine are especially susceptible to attack. They prefer to infest wood with high moisture content in poorly ventilated areas in crawl spaces of houses, utility rooms, and garages. Under favorable conditions, the infestation then spreads into walls and other areas of the structure. Infestations develop slowly but wood can be reinfested year after year.
