Help - I think I have borers! 

Don't worry - the first step is call Austrapest for expert advice. We will recommend an Austrapest Visual Timber Pest Inspection. For the untrained eye, its almost impossible to tell the type of damage to your timber. There are many different species of borers that can damage timbers in buildings. For example,  the larvae or adult of various wood moths, longicorn beetles, jewel beetles, pinhole borers (larvae or adult), Anobium borers, Queensland pine beetles, Lyctus borers and many more. Not to mention other timber pests including termites. The damage caused by borers can range from minimal through to major collapse of floorboards or structural timber in roofs and subfloors.
