WOOD BORER TREATMENT
Wood Borer Treatment: Wood-boring insects such as powder Post Beetles cause untold damage to furniture & other wooden articles. Infestations are characterized by a yellowish powder or frass, which falls from the tunnels excavated by the larvae & shot-holes, from which the adults emerge. They are very destructive & reduce precious wood into dust. Yellow powder in your wooden cupboards and drawers every day, which comes back the very next day even if you clean it? If yes, then most likely you have a problem of borer.
Powder Post Beetle is commonly called Wood Borer. They are very destructive and reduce precious wood into dust. Wood Borers are about 4mm long and dark brown to black in colour. They spend their life in wood. And thus they live in their food. They lay eggs in cracks/pores in the wood.
The life cycle of the insect is unlike animals or human beings. The egg hatch to become larva, then pupa and finally the adult. The larva starts eating voraciously on wood thereby making tunnels inside the wood. The powder or dust falling from the holes in the wood is the excreta of the borers and undigested cellulose of wood.
The adults finally emerge by making tiny pin size holes. The life cycle of wood borers is about one year. Wood in your premises can get infested by cross infestation i.e. from wood infested by wood borers, brought from outside. The infestation generally remains hidden for a long time without giving any indication of its presence. It is noticed after completion of one generation after the excreta starts falling from the holes.
WOOD BORER CONTROL
The Wood Borers are controlled by infusing the bug sprays in the gaps with a syringe. The whole wood is likewise showered with bug spray. For Wood Borers an agreement of three months is for the most part adequate.
After starting real treatment, we go ahead call i.e. at whatever point you see powder falling once more, please call us. As a rule, three months of treatment is sufficient. On the off chance that the invasion is not controlled by three months, it will be important to go into one year’s agreement.
