Borer damage can have long lasting effects, with the strength and value of your property at jeopardy – don’t leave it any longer.
Termite and Borer Removal
Termites and Borer can weaken timber, so can threaten the structural integrity of your home or workplace over time.
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 timber and piles of fine sawdust are sure signs that you may have borer in the furniture or timber of your home.
Borer attacks untreated and damp timber and treating infested areas is often easier said than done. Wood must be stripped and treated directly to completely remove the pest. This is because airborne treatments only kill the flying adult insects and will not remove the larvae inside the timber.
Termites live in large colonies ranging into the thousands. These invasive species damage wood, so they 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 eradicate nests. We also provide recommendations for reducing possible termite food sources such as woodpiles and addressing moisture sources.
