The term wood boring beetle encompasses many species and families of beetles
whose larval or adult forms eat and destroy wood.
Woodboring beetles are commonly detected a few years after new construction. The
lumber supply may have contained wood infected with beetle eggs or larvae, and
since beetle life cycles can be one or more years, several years may pass before
the presence of beetles becomes noticeable. Genuine infestations are far more
likely in areas with high humidity, such as poorly-ventilated crawl spaces.
Housing with central heating/air-conditioning tends to cut the humidity of wood
in the living areas to less than half of natural humidity, thus strongly
reducing the likelihood of an infestation. Infested furniture should be removed
from the house before the infestation spreads.

They destroy & damage wooden furniture & fixtures
