Powder Post Beetle.

Powder post beetles are very small insects measuring between 1/8 and 3/4 of an inch in length. They are cylindrical in shape and usually reddish-brown to black in color. They have a small head and a long, slender body with antennae that are almost as long as their body. Powder post beetles feed on a variety of wood materials, including hardwood, softwood, and bamboo. They leave behind a fine, powdery dust that is a telltale sign of their presence. At ServLabs, we can help you identify and treat any powder post beetle infestations you may be experiencing.

Powder Post Beetle Lifecycle

Powder Post Beetle Lifecycle.

ServLabs offers a comprehensive service to combat powder post beetle infestations. Our pest control experts can inspect your property and identify if these wood-boring insects are present. Once identified, our team will use methods to treat and eliminate the infestation. We can also provide advice on how to prevent future infestations. Lifecycle powder post beetles start off as eggs, which then hatch into larvae. The larvae then bore into the wood and feed on the starch, leaving a powdery debris. After maturing, the larvae will then form adult beetles that exit the wood and mate to start the cycle again. Powder post beetles are small, reddish-brown insects that can cause significant damage to wooden structures and furniture. Infestations are only likely to be found in recently introduced hardwoods items such as oak flooring, new oak furniture or kitchen units, and their lifecycle spans between 1-2years outdoor and 8-10months indoor. At ServLabs, we have the expertise to ensure the infestation is treated quickly and effectively. Our team of professionals will use the latest treatments and techniques to ensure your property is free from powder post beetles.

Types Of Treatment.

ServLabs provides comprehensive Powder Post Beetle treatments to help protect your property from further damage. Our treatment options include water-based and fogging treatments as well as fumigation for the most severe cases. Water-based treatments are ideal for small infestations of woodworm and involve the application of a preservative to the affected areas. Fogging treatments are more suitable for larger infestations, and involve the use of a fine mist that is sprayed onto the affected areas. Finally, for the most severe cases, ServLabs provides fumigation services. This is a specialist fumigation treatment that uses the active ingredient Sulfuryl Fluoride to eradicate the woodworm. All of our treatments are designed to protect your property and provide long-term results.
