Wood Borer Control Sydney - Wood Borer Prevention
Wood Borer Control in Sydney starts with prevention. Here are some tips you can use to keep them out of your home:
Despite your best efforts, wood borers might still get into your space sometimes. Don’t beat yourself up about it; just call Active Pest Control Management for wood borers treatment in Sydney.
After getting your call, we’ll come to your home and perform a thorough pest inspection in Sydney. We do this to accurately determine the scope of the pest problem going on, which will influence our methods.
It’s very helpful if you can point out where you’ve seen pests or even where a nest is. However, we will still perform a full inspection of the building in case there is more than one source or nest. Occasionally, there may even be more than one type of pest that you didn’t know about!
Based on what we learnt from our inspection, we then decide on suitable countermeasures.
Everything depends on the severity of the infestation; the treatment may range from simply leaving traps or poison for the pests, to full-on application of pesticides and other more powerful treatments. Don’t worry about vacating the premises, thanks to our completely environmentally-friendly and non-toxic pest control solutions.
After a certain period, we’ll come back to check how effective our solution has been, resetting traps or reapplying pesticides if necessary. If treatment wasn’t as effective as expected, we always have several backup plans. We have a 12-month guarantee on any job, so rest assured that we’re going to stick around and get things done right, letting your property stay pest-free year-after-year.
Most adult wood borers only live for a matter of weeks, but woodworms can live inside a piece of wood for two to five years, depending on the species. During this time, they cause major structural damage to the wood, which could be problematic for furniture or structures.
Wood powder on the floor near a piece of furniture or wooden structure is a telltale sign that something is burrowing inside your wood. Wood powder tends to be white with tiny grains, so when you spot this all over the floor, it’s not too late to put a stop to the infestation.
Wood borers and termites may both target wood, but their behaviour is rather different. While termites build nests in a separate location and burrow to their food source, borer larvae nest directly inside of their food source. Termite infestations tend to be more serious, as they don’t stop even if a house is brought to collapse.
