I noticed powder post beetles on a live tree that I have on my yard, what's the treatment I should do? it seems that using Bora-Care will kill the tree...
We recommend contacting your Local Cooperative Extension Office and speaking with the Entemologist for a positive identification. Powder POst Beetles only thrive in decaying or dead wood. We do not recommend applying Boracare to live trees it would be very harmful them.
