All of the mesquite that i have milled have bark beetle, mostly in the sapwood. I have seen piles and when it’s very quiet, it’s possible to hear them chewing and working inside the wood.
I’ve tried some borax based products and it did kill them, but not enough to get all of them so I’m still having issues.
I would eventually like to build a solar kiln, but this time of the year, it would not be effective in my opinion.
Has anybody done any kind of heat treating, and if so, would that be sufficient temperature and or time for bark beetle?
