Dry rot is caused by a fungus that becomes dormant when there is no moisture
present. However, its spores remain in the dry wood and are reactivated by
a return of moisture. Finding and permanently arresting water at its source
is the best way to stop dry rot.
The spores can be killed by heat -- I've heard 150 degrees F will do it.
But permanently stopping the moisture at its source is really what you need
