Wood Borer Control Services

GPM offers wood control services for all species of wood borer. Larvae eat their way through the interior of wood before emerging via flight holes as adults to mate and begin the life cycle over again. All untreated timbers can be attacked.

GPM PEST technicians will survey the extent of infestation and apply penetrating treatments , which persists in the wood, killing insects as they emerge, and preventing re-infestation for at least five years.

BORER (Bora)- WOOD BORING INSECTS

Adult females lay up to 100 eggs on bare timber or in old flight holes. The eggs hatch after 4-5 weeks and the larvae bore through the wood, eating it and using yeasts in their stomachs to help break down cellulose in the wood. After 3-4 years the larvae pupate in a chamber near the surface, then 4-8 weeks later the adults exit the wood by eating their way to the surface. The adults fly to find a mate and begin the life cycle over again. The females lay their eggs on bare wood,. The flight holes are approximately 2mm in diameter for Common Borer and 3-4mm for native borer. It is important that a thorough survey is carried out to ascertain the extent of any infestation. It is frequently the case that a few flight holes are visible on the exterior of painted weather boards, however when the boards are examined more closely the interior of the timbers are badly damaged and many flight holes are present on the interior surface.
Borer larvae prefer the softer sap wood timbers to eat and damage. It is often seen in weatherboards or floor boards that some are heavily attacked and others untouched. The untouched timbers are likely to be harder heartwood. It is also the case that attack is more likely on the south side of a house and in the floor boards and joists. This is because borer prefer the cooler damper areas where the relative humidity is higher.

Our offered range of Wood Borer Control Servicesdeliver effective & better way to prevent and protect the damages and loss incurred by the insects and germs. The insects leave their larvae inside the wooden timber which consume dry wood. Several types of wood borer are there which damage the household wooden articles & furniture. The most common types of borer are Anobid, Lyctid and Bostrichid. The problem of wood damage can be overcome by early detection and prevention. Major larvae damage occurs entirely below the surface of the wood where larvae eat tunnels. We conduct and carry our the services of wood borer management by injecting fluid chemicals through the holes and junctions made on the walls. For an unfinished surface the service is executed by painting the chemicals through brushes. Good drainage and sub floor ventilation will help in reducing the risk of attack to softwood flooring timbers from these species.
