Powder Post Beetles, popularly known as "Wood borers", mainly belong to three families of beetles. These families are 1) Lyctidae 2) Bostrichidae and 3) Anobidae. These pests with wood boring habits are viewed seriously considering their ability to reduce timber and wooden articles to a mass of splinters and dust.
The peculiarity of this pest is that their infestation remains hidden for a long time without giving any indication of its presence in the wooden articles. It is usually noticed after completion of at least one generation when adults start emerging out through shot holes and powder star falling from them.
