Small cracks in carpets or furniture can diagnose borers.
Wood borers are parasites that eat wood and wood furniture. Australia is home to many wood borers. Some are dangerous, but others can be helpful.
One of Australia’s most widespread borers is the furniture beetle. The furniture beetle, which is brownish and oblong-shaped, can grow to 2.7 to 2.5mm. When moving furniture, they can leave 2-3mm of space.
