About Wood Boring Beetles
Wood boring beetles are insects that feed off of and destroy wooden materials. The adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks and holes in wood and the larvae – more commonly known as “woodworms” – spend the majority of their young lives eating their way out of the wood in which they inhabit. This can result in significant damages to wooden structures, outdoor decks, hardwood floors, furniture, support beams, and more. The most common signs of wood boring beetles are the wood powder, tunnels, and holes they leave behind. If you are able to see visible holes in wood, this typically indicates that the larvae have matured and already left the wood. The size of these emergence holes varies depending on the type of wood-boring beetle but are all a sign of concern since an infestation will degrade the structural integrity of whatever has been occupied by these unwanted guests.
If you notice any of these tell-tale signs regarding wood boring beetles, call our team of exterminators right away. We will come to take a look at wood on your property and determine if the infestation is still active. If active, we will effectively treat the problem and refer you to our friends in the industry who can help with wood replacement options if necessary.
Treating Wood Boring Beetles
There are a few different viable options we offer when it comes to treating the wood boring beetle infestation. The particular treatment used will likely depend on the location and size of the infestation, which we will assess upon investigation. Our treatment options for effectively exterminating wood boring beetle larvae include the following:
As a natural extract of orange peels, orange oil’s active ingredient is D-Limonene, which is a fairly effective and eco-friendly insecticide. In the case of treating woodworms, orange oil’s fumes act as a potent neurotoxin as the oil itself is a highly-efficient insecticide. Our team will begin treatment by drilling holes into the infested wood and injecting them with copious amounts of orange oil. Once injected, the oil will disperse throughout the various tunnels to kill off the destructive larvae, leaving behind a fresh orange scent!
If the infestation has taken place within your commercial or residential structure, fumigation will need to be strongly considered. Though this is one of the lengthier and more tedious forms of extermination we offer here at MightyMite Termite, it is also one of the most effective. The penetration of fumigants moves throughout the entirety of your home or business, eradicating both visible infestations as well as those more inaccessible places. Fumigation almost always results in a 100% elimination of wood-dwelling organisms throughout the three-day treatment process, though localized treatments and sealants may need to be used to prevent this problem from happening again in the future.
