Bostrichid Powderpost Beetle


Bostrichid Powderpost Beetle


Bostrichid powderpost beetles are smaller dark brown beetles with barrel-shaped bodies that can give them a distinct appearance. Bostrichid powderpost beetles prefer humid climates like that of South Florida, and flourish in moist environments. They share similar characteristics with Anobiid and Lyctid powderpost beetles, but they have distinct characteristics as well. 

Due to their love of hardwood, these beetles are a threat to homes. Fortunately, they tend to leave the softwood structure of homes alone. Because of their preference for hardwood, their larvae tend to be bigger and more aggressive when first hatched to attack the denser wood. 

Preventative measures are easier to manage than exterminating these pests. Once you have a bostrichid powderpost beetle infestation, it’s better to call a South Florida pest control professional to help take care of the job.
