Borer Treatment, Control, Prevention & Removal in Melbourne & Bendigo, VIC
A Borer is an insect that can tunnel through timber structures, comprising the original integrity of the wood. As a borers preferred food source is wood, the general initial sign of their presence is tiny pin holes in timber. There are some other key signs that might indicate borer activity, including the appearance of a very fine, powder-like dust, usually below timber structures; and tunnels (commonly referred to as ‘galleries’) in the wood.
After adult beetles lay eggs and the larvae hatch, the larvae tend to go straight into whatever wood they were laid upon, and make home there. The appearance of small pin holes in timber can then occur as they becomes adults and head toward the surface.
It is important to note that effective wood borer treatment requires proper identification of the type of wood borer involved and careful implementation of the chosen treatment method. It is often best to consult with a pest control professional for advice on the most appropriate treatment for a specific infestation.
