Wood Boring Insect Pests
Fumigate –Use NO Bugs Super Bug Bombs or NO Bugs Super Fumigator fumigators between Oct-Mar to quickly knock down adult beetles before they mate and re-infest wood.
Fumigation is often the only option for treating homes and buildings where all the timbers cannot be easily accessed.
Ventilate/Dry - Borer prefer timber that has some moisture in it. Ensure that your sub-floor and roof spaces are dry and well ventilated. Check for plumbing leaks and unblock all air vents.
Most species of stored product insect pests go through multiple generations per year. In some species of stored product insects it is only the larval stage that consumes food. In these cases, the purpose of the adult insect is to mate, find food and lay eggs. Insect species in which the adults also feed can survive longer and continue to infest and feed on available foods for several months to a year.
Decorative items such as dried flower arrangements, or pet feed may be treated with heat 70°C for about 20 mins or in a non-self-defrosting freezer at -18°C for 4 days.
