Powder Post Beetles

Furnished content.
(from WoodNet.net)


I built a box app. 16' x 5' x 4' to enclose some wood from the old barn. It is infested with powder post beetles but I want to save it. It is loosely piled in.
I have read that hot temps between 120-140 for 24 hours will kill them.
I have read that freezing temps for 5-7 days will kill them.
I didn't know if there was a third option. Any consumer bug bombs or something of that sort that I could throw in there to kill the buggers?

If we have a prolonged cold snap this winter, I plan to remove the end plywood to freeze them but a multi-pronged approach would make me feel better.
And if there are no consumer chemicals aerosols available, I will also try to use heat next summer.

TIA
