Why Do I Have Wood Borers?

There are several common species of wood borers in Australia, but they share many commonalities in terms of behaviour. The adults are most active in the warmer summer months, searching for wood to infest. Unlike termites, who specifically target damp wood, borers are much less picky, though damp wood is easier to burrow through too.

Softwood is the prime target for wood borers, especially pine wood or trees. Some species can easily burrow through hardwood as well, however. Hardwood is usually lower in starch content, however, which makes them less ideal for borers to lay eggs in, so they may be safer from infestation.

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:

  • Preemptively treat furniture with pesticide in the summer
  • Apply paint or varnish to wooden furniture to prevent access
  • Buy furniture made with seasoned lumber
  • Avoid storing large amounts of firewood
  • Reduce moisture with good ventilation

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.

The Active Wood Borer Pest Control Process

Step 1
Step 1

Wood Borer Inspection

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!

Wood Borer Solution

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.

Step 3

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.

Wood Borer Pest Control Sydney FAQs

Question 1

How long do wood borers live?

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.

Question 2

How do you spot borers and woodworms?

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.

Question 3

Are wood borers the same as termites?

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.
