Small white sacks found on wood beams
 
2 Attachment(s)
Good evening everyone, I examined the wood beams in my New England farmhouse today and found insect damage to several beams. The only signs of insects that I could see were little white sacks hanging from underneath some of the beams. I found 5 of these sacks today but I have no idea what kind of insect they are from. Can anyone chime in with any info? Thanks in advance!

Those look like spider egg sacs but they haven't been eating your house.

In fact, unless they are venomous, they are the good guys and are eating other insects. Those are good sized sacks though!

Sounds like you should inspect for termites, carpenter ants and such.

Thanks for the info! I hope those spiders stay in the basement!! I'll continue to monitor the beams for other signs and add an exterminator to my lengthy to-do list! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
