The term ‘wood borer’ covers many types of wood boring beetles, some with wonderful names like Auger, Jewel, Stag and Pinhole Borers. But whatever they are called, you’ll want to say goodbye to them.
Here are some helpful facts about Wood Borers:
Larvae burrow deep into the wood where they feed – and in the process make a maze of tunnels over several years.
If you don’t have specialist Wood Borer control the larvae can seriously weaken the timbers in a building. If left untreated, this may lead to structural failure of timbers.

FACT: The Deathwatch Beetle makes a 'ticking' sound inside wooden timbers. Occupants of medieval sick rooms often heard this sound whilst keeping watch over the dead and dying, hence the name.
