Oh no I just discovered a small wood eating pest....
I am just sick my dh has a collection of wood furniture he loves.
We rent and I am so sad i don't know what to do.

I found them as I was trying to get the landlord to repair and replace a cupboard they said no as it was our fault it got water on it...
now i find these bugs there.....

Now they are gonig to have to do it all, and I guess I can get rid of a lot of furniture now.

Anyone have any experience with wood eaters?

8 might be enough

Sorry to hear that, but you shouldn't have to get rid of all your furniture just because you have a bug infestation. Any idea what they might be? The first thing I'd do is declutter and vacuum REALLY well. Everywhere. Even in the cabinets and below the drawers if you can get in there. Make sure all wood is dry and report any leaks from the radiators or plumbing fixtures or around windows, etc. The landlord needs to know about that anyway. From there you can begin to get rid of the insects. Let us know what happens, kay?

I had some type of a bug eating my antique wood coffee grinder. I smothered the wood in olive oil mixed with a little lemon juice. Bye bye bugs

So there is hope, dont throw out the furniture!

Are there bug eating your furniture or just the cabinet?
