Adults cause some damage by feeding at the base of small twigs, but this may not be noticed unless large numbers are present. Most of the damage is done by the larvae feeding between the bark and wood of the trunk or limbs of host trees. The adult is a dark brown to black beetle about 1/10 inch. The larva are white, no legs with brown heads and are also about 1/10 inch.
