The Wood Beetle has 4 stages of metamorphosis: Egg, Larva, Pupa, Adult. The female lays her eggs in pockets at intervals along the wood, and each larva forms its own tunnel, turning the wood fibers into a fine powder. Common types found in the Pacific Northwest include the True Powder Post Beetle, the False Powder Post Beetle, the Old House Borer, and the Deathwatch Beetle. Wood Beetles have been known to live up to 50 years in the larva stage, the most destructive stage of their life cycle. Infestations are very difficult to spot. The only evidence they leave behind is a tiny exit hole in the wood when adult beetles emerge to lay more eggs.
