Wood Beetle Removal

Wood Beetle Beaverton
Wood beetles live, predictably, in wood. They bore holes into their living spaces which then creates expensive damage to homes and business. In addition to building materials, wood beetles also cause damage to furniture, any type of wood handles—such tool handles—flooring, books, and much more. They can eat away at most types of wood, including bamboo. Don’t wait until the damage gets worse, call The Killers for wood beetle removal in Beaverton today.

What are the signs of a wood beetle infestation?

Wood beetles stay deep within the wood they inhabit, so you are not likely to see the actual insects. The best way to identify a problem is the evidence they leave behind. You will notice a series of holes they create. These holes are 1/8″ and often have a fine wood dust coming out of them. Wood beetle larvae also make a ticking sound that can sometimes be heard outside of their wood home.

Unfortunately, wood beetle larvae live inside wood for many years before exiting and leaving the evidence of a visible hole on the surface of the wood. By that time, the damage inside the wood is extensive.

Wood beetles prefer damp wood and often enter a house or building from the spaces closest to the ground. For these reasons, having a vapor barrier installed in the crawl space is a good preventative measure in avoiding an infestation.
