Wood Borer Control in Bangalore
Wood borers are tiny beetles whose larvae feed extensively on wood. The adults make tiny pinhead size holes on the wooden surface before flying out. The brass or powder then begins to fall out from these tinyholes. This is the first sign of infestation in the furniture.
Anti Borer Treatment - Wood borers (Powder Post Beetles) are tiny beetles whose larvae feed extensively on the wood. The wood worms while emerging make tiny pin size holes on the surface of wooden furniture or fixture. Those tiny holes which you see on wood surface are actually the exit -holes where the adult wood borer has left. The fine yellowish colored powder (Yellow Dust) starts appearing from these tiny holes. This indicates the destructive activity of borers deep inside the core of the wood as these are internal feeders. They feed on the cell contents of the sapwood. While feeding they make tunnels and pupate within the wood. Borers or Powder Post Beetles attack partially or fully seasoned wood with 10-15% moisture. (i.e almost dry condition).
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.
The wood surface is also applied with residual pesticides chemicals having petroleum base. 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.
