grubs in bark of white pine
« on: September 21, 2011, 08:43:49 PM »
Need some help, sawed a pine that had been laying for about a year. Under the bark were several white grubs. Didn't pay a whole lot of attention until I noticed nice little piles of sawdust in and under the fresh cut stickered boards. What do I have and how can I get rid of it? Thanks in advance. Gary C

Get the wood dry.

Those bugs will die off in dry wood.

There are borers that can live in dry wood, but they are a different species.

These will be some sort of decomposing insect larvae.  IANAB is right - they will die if the wood is dried
