Why Is Timely Borer Treatment Important?

Let’s go in detail and see the issues associated with the borer pest infestation. We can also learn why timely treatment is important in saving your property from further damage:
  • The pests are known for making holes in your wood materials by feeding the starch and other nutrients in the wood.
  • The damage to your wooden floors and walls can weaken the structural support for your property.
  • If your property has some antique furniture, transferred over generations, you may be at the risks of irreplaceable loss.
  • With wood dust, dropping of borers, and damaged timber, your property may look untidy and unwelcoming for others.
Wood borer infestation in a furniture or wood material can quickly spread to other wooden products at your property and lead to widespread damage. Therefore, you don’t forget to seek professional pest control services as soon as you observe the signs of the infestation.

Signs Of Borer Infestation

Every time, you won’t see live borers in your property to confirm the infestation. Since early identification of borer infestation is important in ensuring minimal damage to your property, you should regularly check for the following signs:
  • Do you see weak, damaged floorboards? It could be the signs of borer infestation.
  • Presence of eggs, wood borer larvae, and bore dust in your property.
  • Crumbling of wood products, especially around the edges or corners of floorboards.
  • Dead borers in your property, especially in near windowsills and infested wood.
  • Oval or round-shaped holes on timber products
If you notice the above symptoms of wood borer infestation at your property, call Tom’s Pest Control immediately for quick borer control services.
