I forgot about Rentokil, a product you brush on the wood, it soaks in about 1-2 inches. This is very effective and does not harm the finish. It can be injected into the holes or drill some to get it way inside the wood. Pharamone traps are avaible, these attract the little fellows like a beetle bordello, they get stuck to the inside surface and end up doing life. The thing is you can tell if they are still around and take further action. There are many types, most are about 1/8" long when mature. Also tape a sheet of paper over the area they have choosen, each type has a favorite couple of woods, if they are still active you should see tiny holes start to appear in the paper as they emerge from the larve stage and fly off. Good luck, James
