Borer Treatments offers specialist borer control services throughout New Zealand for all three main species of borer (sometimes known as bora or woodworm) and other wood boring insects and drywood termites that affect New Zealand timbers. Larvae of the beetles eat their way through the interior of wood before emerging via flight holes as adults to mate and begin the life cycle over again, each female borer beetle can lay between 20-40 eggs. All untreated timbers can be attacked.

Borer treatment technicians will survey the extent of infestation and apply penetrating treatments with natural insecticide, which persists in the wood, killing insects as they emerge, and preventing re-infestation for at least ten years or more in normal circumstances.

Borer Treatment technicians have had over 50 years experience in borer control and hold Approved Timbor Handlers Certificates.
