Borer Treatment

The common borer beetle, unfortunately, a little insect is responsible for a lot of Auckland house owners losing their piece of mind. The thought of these tiny little larvae slowly damaging the woodwork in a home is an uncomfortable one. Luckily it’s easily remedied. Remedial timber treatments have come a long way in recent years. In fact, the future of timber treatment and protection is actually from a very old, in fact, ancient solution. The movement now is away from the toxic insecticides of recent decades and back to more organic treatments that have been around much longer.

The product we use is a natural one, Pest-Bor (Sodium Borate). It is non toxic but still great to treat timber.

Insects like borer and termites are exposed to the active ingredient by eating treated wood or by ingestion while grooming. Borates are a contact toxicant to fungi. The borates prevent the metabolism of food by insects and fungi causing death.

We find this product very reliable and are willing to warranty the treatment. Call today and let's discuss getting your borer treatment sorted out.
