POWDERPOST BORER IN NEW CONSTRUCTION

Most people are aware of the damage termites can have when they invade a home. But they are not aware of other pests that can cause thousands of dollars in household destruction. The powderpost borer or beetle comes right behind the termite in amounts of damage it can do. With building structures being made from hardwoods, new home construction sites must beware of the predator it’s attracting. Powderpost borers attack hardwoods due to its high starch content and large pore size where they lay their eggs. Once the eggs are laid and hatch, the larvae begin to eat through the wood, creating a tunnel like pattern and severely weakening the integrity of the structure. Don’t leave an infestation to chance. Contact us today and we’ll tell you about our prevention programs and treatments.

OLD HOUSE BORER IN NEW CONSTRUCTION

Like powderpost beetles, old house borers or beetles are a threat to the integrity of wood. They too hatch larvae that eats through the structure and can cause serious damage. Known also as the ‘long-horned beetle’, old house borers seek out soft woods to nest in primary during the late summer months. The most common woods old house borers are found in are lumber found in lumberyards, pine, fir, or spruce. Builders may not even realize they have an infestation issue, until they discover the exit holes left behind by adult old house borers. Don’t wait to get an infestation. Contact Pest Solutions and we’ll take care of your build’s preventative maintenance, leaving you to create a safer and structurally sound home.
