Wood borer treatment

After one of our experienced surveyors has carried out a thorough inspection, assessing the extent of any problem, the type of Wood Borer involved and determined if the infestation is active, an appropriate Wood Borer treatment will be recommended.

We treat Wood Borer issues in properties of all ages and sizes.

All Wood Borer treatments are specially designed to disrupt at least one of the lifecycle stages of the beetles. Ours target the young larvae buried in the timber.

How to get rid of wood borers

Rentokil technicians use specialist treatments to deal with Wood Borer problems:

  • Flood spray treatment - To assist with long-term protection the solution will remain within the timber, cracks, crevices and flight holes to control existing borer and prevent any future infestations becoming established.

With a lifecycle of at least 3 to 4 years there may still be some beetles that reach adulthood and emerge from the timber after treatment. This is known as 'post treatment emergence'. Any eggs that these ‘post treatment emergence’ beetles leave in cracks, crevices or old flight holes of the treated timbers will not survive, which means that the Wood Borer lifecycle will have been broken.
