Wood borer in garage

Asked February 27, 2016, 2:30 PM EST

Two of the studs in my garage have holes caused by some boring insect - One stud also has a lot of wood chewed off - from the bottom up. What is causing this and what should I do about it?

The photo lacks the detail needed to identify the insects that caused the damage. Perhaps you can use the information at this website to identify them:


After you have identified the pest, follow the control recommendations in the bulletin.
