How to Get Rid of Wood Borer

When a wood borer infestation is left untreated, they can potentially develop into a serious issue, such as damaging wooden floors, door and furniture. The following step will help discourage wood borer infestations:

  • Wood boring beetles are attracted to the moisture content in the wood, try to keep furniture, door and wooden items dry. 
  • Seal cracks and crevices on wood surfaces to deter wood borer from breeding. 
  • Remove infected wood to avoid the infestation from spreading to another area.
