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 provide wood borer treatments in the Gauteng and the Western Cape regions. Fumigation will be performed on wooden furniture and any other wooden items on our premises, while containers and silos will be fumigated on your property. Please note that we do not treat any buildings or structures for wood borer.
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.
Rentokil technicians use specialist treatments to get rid of Wood Borer problems:
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.
