Wood Borers Treatment &
Removal Services Sydney
Most residential and commercial properties in Australia have wood materials in them. Homes have wooden frames, beams, floors, windows, and doors. Commercial properties also have doors, windows, and wooden structural elements. These materials need to remain strong and intact in order for the building to remain secure and structurally sound. Borers can compromise this structural integrity and lead expensive repairs.
At Knock-Down Pest Control, we have effective solutions against wood borers and will make sure they’re eliminated from your property before they can cause too much damage to it.
What Are Borers?
Borers are small insects that consume wood. They’ll dig into the wooden material and form expansive tunnels over the course of a few months or years. These tunnels weaken the wood and weak wood can’t bear the load of building materials or pressure from movement. Here are some things you need to know about wood borers:
Wood boring insects come in different varieties and species. You can get Jewel, Pinhole, Stag, and Auger borer infestation in your property.
Adults will lay their eggs and small cracks and crevasses in the wood.
When these eggs hatch into larvae, they’ll start borrowing into the wood and go deep as they feed.
The cycle will keep repeating as these larvae grow into adults and reproduce. If you don’t handle the problem promptly, they borers will eventually cause extensive and even irreparable damage.
