The walnut sapwood that I had powder post beetles in looked very sound when I built a chair. Several months later, tiny holes and little piles of sawdust! Came right through several coats of cured Spar Urethane! I tried several fixes and finally put it in a “tent” and set off one of those bug bombs in the “tent”. Most advice I got said this was a waste of time, but it did solve my problem. “BB sized” holes seem awfully big for powder post beetles to me.
