Borer Control Service (Borer Powder)
Powder Post Beetles also known as borers. Unlike termites, it is an equally important pest that destroys wood. They can do significant damage to log homes, furniture, wood floors and structural timbers. People do not realize that the wood is infested until the adult beetles emerge from within the wood. The exit holes are very small, about the size of a pin head.
The main sign of infestation is yellowish powder from furniture, which is one of excrement from the body. The larvae bore into the wood and live for years on the network supply of wood to create tunnels in the wood house and can quickly reduce to dust.
As a treatment, wood preservative chemicals are required to be injected into these tiny exit holes with the help of syringe and larvae is targeted as only larvae is responsible for the damage to the wood.
An oil base solution is injected in the holes created as result of damage caused by powder post beetles. The entire infested portion is then sprayed and the holes are then plugged with wood wax.
These residual pesticides will stop the current infestation as well as protect against new invaders if they find their way to your precious wooden furniture.
