There's Carpenter Bees[Xylocopa Latreille], Horntails [Siricidae Tremex], Metallic Wood Borers [Buprestidae coleoptera], Powderpost Beetles [Lyctus brunneus], Shipworms [Bankia setacea], depending on your location, any number of these could be living in your house and/or Boat. Common ways to get rid of them include: Painting your house, Fumigation, and a substance called EcoSMART.

There are not many types of wood eating bugs. The most commonly known would be the termite but there are also beetles that eat wood.
