I found this PNG carving a couple of weeks ago.



I just realized that the poor thing is woodworm infected.
All I know about woodworm I learned from old cartoons, so now Im totally terrorized by visions of my tiki room reduced to sawdust.

Please, need some advice...

You mean wood beetles/borers? Are there little holes with sawdust coming out? I haven't had any luck killing those except for raw logs that haven't been carved yet. I soaked the log in water for several days. Seemed to work pretty good. doesn't look like you'd want to do that with this find. :0

Will it fit in your freezer? If so, leave it in a bag in there for about a week or so. You can also seal it in a trash bag and keep spraying poison in it until they all die.

Buzzy Out!
