The damage to the wood can be done by the large wood borers and powder post beetles. The
damage may be detected when there is a presence of the emergency holes. The damage by the
powder post beetles is identified when there is powder in these cavities. The emergency
holes are not used to know the Kentucky insects that may be found within the holes. When there is
evidence of the large wood borers with the Louisville powder post beetles that it is detected, the
specialist has to be consulted to identify what it is the cause of these
The Kentucky carpenter ants may choose the wood as the nesting sites and they prefer normally the soft wood and wood softened by the fungal decay. Since the immature ants may be susceptible to desiccation, the wood have to be moist and it has to be in the place where there is a high humidity. The Louisville carpenters’ bees which burrow in the structural timbers look large, they are robust insects and they resemble the bumble bees. They have unbranched and elongate galleries that may be around 15 cm.
The wood that was exposed to the marine waters, they can be attacked by the invertebrate or small animals called marine borers. The woodpeckers and the rodents can damage the wood trying to get to the food or to have a nesting place. This is a problem when the woodpeckers decide to use the siding of the building for the destructive activity. When the siding is insect infected, the wood peckers may be destructive and the elimination of the Kentucky woodpeckers will be minimized in the place. However, if it is the problem of nesting from the rodents or woodpeckers, then it is going to be even more difficult to do the control. The physical barrier is needed so that these animals do not come to do the nesting activities in the place. To avoid the damage of the wood caused by the Louisville animals, it is good to treat the wood using the preservatives or the chemicals that make the wood to be resistant. The superficial protection of the wood using the water repellent preservatives, it can be done by short dip of the lumber into the treating solution.
