Wood borers are often commonly thought to be somehow related to termites. They are not. They are a totally separate timber pest and control measures are quite different. An experienced technician is required to assess the affected areas and recommend the appropriate treatment.
Wood borers that are likely to need attention attack timber already within the home. Hardwood attracts different borers to softwood and a different control method is required. Borers affecting softwood are the most common problem and if the timber is not beyond repair, an effective treatment can be applied. Usually this involves applying a treatment to the underside of flooring. A treatment like this is very effective and only required once.
