Wood borers

The term ‘wood borer’ covers many types of wood boring beetles, some with wonderful names like Auger, Jewel, Stag and Pinhole Borers. But whatever they are called, you’ll want to say goodbye to them.

Here are some helpful facts about wood borers:

  • Adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks in wood. Outdoors this isn’t much of a problem, but inside your property they might infest floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and any other wooden objects.
  • If you don’t have specialist wood borer control the larvae can seriously weaken the timbers in a building. If left untreated, this may lead to structural failure.

Rentokil's professional wood borer survey

Left untreated, Wood Borers have the potential to develop into a serious issue, ruining floors and furniture. We strongly recommend that a professional Wood Borer survey is carried out if you think you may have identified the signs of a Wood Borer problem.

Our experienced surveyors are based across the country and are ready to carry out a thorough inspection to assess the extent of any problem and the type of Wood Borer involved.

They will also determine if the infestation is active, check for associated problems such as wood rot or damp and if any timbers need replacing. Based on this detailed evaluation they will then recommend any appropriate Wood Borer treatment.

We follow key steps to make sure we find the best treatment to suit your property. Our professional, experienced surveyors will:

  • Carry out a thorough inspection to assess the extent of any problem and the species of Wood Borer involved.
  • Determine if the infestation is active, and if it actually requires treatment?
  • Confirm the extent of repair needed and/or timber replacement required and any incidental treatment required for the remaining infected areas.
  • Check for associated problems such as wood rot or damp and if any timbers need replacing.

Based on this detailed evaluation they will then recommend any appropriate Wood Borer treatment. The only way an accurate price can be quoted is by a qualified surveyor carrying out a full Wood Borer survey.
