While foggers can be used in attics to treat for many insects, fogs are normally not the recommended treatment method for any type of boring insect. You would need to treat the wood in the attic directly with a product like Boracare. Boracare is specifically formulated to absorb into wood either through spraying or painting it onto the surface and eliminate any insect that consumes the wood. It will last for the life of the wood as well to help prevent any new infestations from wood destroying insects or wood destroying fungus. You can see a great article from the Penn State Universities Entomology department on Old House Borers HERE. Under the management area number 3 refers to the borate treatment for the wood.
