ANTI-WOOD BORER TREATMENT

Wood borers (Powder Post Beetles) are tiny beetles whose larvae feed extensively on the wood. The wood worms while emerging make tiny pin size holes on the surface of wooden furniture or fixture. Those tiny holes which you see on wood surface are actually the exit -holes where the adult wood borer has left. The fine yellowish colored powder (Yellow Dust) starts appearing from these tiny holes. This indicates the destructive activity of borers deep inside the core of the wood as these are internal feeders. They feed on the cell contents of the sapwood. While feeding they make tunnels and pupate within the wood. Borers or Powder Post Beetles attack partially or fully seasoned wood with 10-15% moisture. (i.e almost dry condition).

The amount of damage that wood boring beetles cause depends on many factors. For active wood boring beetle infestation we offer Effective treatment using chemicals for spraying and brushing treatment. Also, we inject chemicals into these tiny short holes with the help of needles to kill larvae in the woods, which may destroy the wood in the future. All wooden furniture and fixtures including those attached to the wall are treated with care.
