Wood Destroying Beetles


1/32″ to 1/4″ flat body, red in color with six legs and two antennae. These beetles can fly.


Wood destroying beetles will attack wood that is under 10 years old, both lumber and manufactured wood products. They will fly and infest other wood.

How do they affect me?

These beetles can be very harmful to wood. A large population of these beetles can cause serious damage.

What should I do?

All new and manufactured wood should be sealed, to prevent possible beetle activity. If this was not done and there is activity, we offer a wood destroying beetle treatment program. Please contact us if you are interested.
