Meet the Wood borer
Wood borers belong to the family of beetles whose larval or adult forms eat and destroy wood. They are important in the turnover of trees by culling weak trees, thus allowing new growth to occur, but in homes they can cause severe damage to furniture. They are commonly detected a few years after new construction. Wood Borers turn wood into a mass of wood dust. The tiny pin hole in a wooden surface is a symptom of wood borer attack. Wood borer infestations are far more likely to happen in areas with high humidity, such as poorly-ventilated crawl spaces.
How do I eliminate Wood borers permanently?
Treatment of timbers to remove borer infestation is the same for whichever species is present. You must treat any wood with solvent based insecticidal bored fluid. For best result on how to get rid of wood beetles solvent based insecticide using turpentine also prevents adults laying eggs on the surface. In normal circumstances this will protect the wood for many years. The solvent used to carry insecticide deep into the timber will leave a solvent smell for some days. Ventilation will help to dissipate the odor. It is best to leave this to HICARE expert. Inject flight holes in painted, varnished or polished timbers with aerosol injection fluid. This comes supplied with a nozzle for fitting into the fight holes. The aerosol forces insecticide into the labyrinth created by the borer larva, killing any larva in the labyrinth or nearby. It also prevents adult beetles laying eggs in the flight hole. Borer prefers timber that has some moisture in it. They love the monsoon dampness. Check for plumbing leaks and unblocks all air vents. Check for leaks in the roof and if you have old terracotta or concrete tiles. These can act like sponges soaking up water.
Wood borers: Did you know how scary they are?
Woodworm is the collective name for the larval stage of certain wood boring beetles – it doesn’t actually refer to a specific species. The pests are seasonal like other pests, and the woodworm season usually runs from May to October. The monsoon with closed windows; dampness and moisture is perfect from them. Woodworm attack internal and external timber, both as a source of food and as their home. They also enjoy nibbling wood in from windows to chairs for tables. The larvae spend roughly 3.5 to 4 years beneath the surface of the timber eating wood, slowly increasing in size. Once the larvae have evolved into a beetle, it will bite its way through the surface of the timber, creating the recognizable small holes. Wood boring beetles are attracted to light and can often be found near windowsills, windows or around loft hatches. Woodworm can be picky and have preferences for certain types of wood. Woodworm problems can be very serious (as they love wooden beans and door-frames) cases, could lead to the failure of the structure of a building. You certainly don’t want your house failing down.

"Prevention is the best management for wood – infesting beetles."
Inspect timber and wood products when selecting, if possible or when delivered to your home for infestation holes.
Use wood that has been kiln or air dried to reduce moisture as that is favorable to wood-infesting beetles.
Firewood should be debarked, split (to speed drying), and stored away from structures.
Reduce moisture inside the home with proper ventilation, drainage and dehumidifiers.
Treat unfinished wood with a borate product (solvent based insecticide before sealing) to prevent damage from wood-destroying organisms.
Infested branches or limbs of trees outdoors can be turned.
