Borer and Termites

Borer damage can have long lasting effects, with the strength and value of your property at jeopardy – don’t leave it any longer.

Borer and Termite Removal

Borer and Termites can weaken timber and over time can threaten the structural integrity of your home or workplace.

Borer Control

There are 7 species of borer in NZ with the most common being the Common House Borer. Small holes (2-4mm) on the surface of the timber and piles of fine sawdust are sure signs that you may have borer in the timber or furniture in your home include.

Borer attacks untreated and damp timber and treating infested areas is often easier said than done. Wood must be stripped and treated directly to remove the pest as airborne treatments such as bombs only kill the flying adult insects and will not remove the larvae inside the timer.

Termite Control

Termites live in large colonies ranging into the thousands. These invasive species damage wood and can pose a significant threat to New Zealand timber, homes and economy.

In order to identify a termite infestation, we perform inspections and may employ monitoring stations. After highly active areas are located, we utilise a range of methods including bait stations and liquid solutions to address problem areas and erradicate nests.  We also provide recommendations for reducing possible termite food sources such as woodpiles and addressing moisture sources.
