When undertaking Wood Borer Treatment in a Melbourne property, our experts know that there are several different species which could be causing the problem. Our first task, therefore, is to locate and identify them. Some can cause more serious damage than others. This identification accomplished, we can then recommend the most effective and specific eradication treatment; and offer advice and actions to complete to help prevent such future infestations.

Timber Borer Removal
Our timber borer removal technicians well know that borers can cause more anxiety amongst homeowners than other pests because the tell-tale borer dust is a sure sign that borers are or have been in the wood. The most prevalent borers are lyctid, longicom and anobiid borers. They can enter your home through a variety of sources.
SOLVING THE PROBLEM
The Pest Police Australia timber borer removal expert inspector will identify the type of borer and recommend suitable treatment. Their professional inspection will be accompanied by a written diagnosis of the problem and quotation.
Anobiids can be found in antique or secondhand furniture and in secondhand floorboards. They are particularly prone to damaging floorboards under carpet, and Anobiid damage must be attended to.
Lyctids are recognised by their 2 mm holes with quantities of flour-like wood dust and most often attack skirting boards and architraves.
Longicoms leave oval shaped holes, and are less damaging than other borers, as they cannot breed in timber. To identify which species of borer is present in your property, you need an expert.
