    My first guess would be post powder beetles. Not sure on how to get rid of them though. I know high temperatures will do it from a kiln.

    A friend purchased a live edge piece of fir for a mantle.
    He has noticed it has  some really small bugs in  it and want to know what to do to get rid of them.

    For now, I suggested wrapping the wood airtight in plastic (mattress bag) and leaving it be fore a while.  That's one way to get rid of bed bugs, and I assumed it would work here.

    The bugs are tiny.

    The first pic is a close up of one of the bugs.
    The second pics (with the quarter) shows the holes they are burrowing into the wood.

    any one know what these are and the best way to get rid of them?
