Boring Pests Cause Damage Like Termites

Many species of beetles infest wood in southern California. Wood boring beetles are decomposition agents which attack trees, timber, furniture or structures. Beetles go through a complete life cycle - egg, larva, pupa, adult. Wood boring beetles are known to do the most damage in the larval stage. Pupation typically takes place in the wood and as adults emerge from the wood, they leave holes in the surface. There are many methods of control for wood boring beetles and our service technician evaluate your infestation and discuss options for effective control.

Thanks guys keep up good work."
