Wood borers are wood-destroying insects that attack and destroy structural integrity of your furniture and wooden assets. All homes and businesses made of natural wood are at the risk of wood borers’ infestation. The adult beetles breed on cracks and hole in the wood and larvae eat their way out of the food/ wood for many years. This will create holes and cracks on your wooden structure.
Moisture content or moist atmosphere is perfect for their breeding. Woodworm attacks both internal and external wood as a source of food and their home. The larvae spend about 3.5 to 4 years on the surface eating the wood, increasing in size. Once the larvae have evolved into a beetle, it will bite through the surface of the trunk and create recognizable tiny holes. Wood-boring beetles are attracted to light, which can often be found around window sills, windows, or loft hatches.
