Beetle Treatment & Compliance

Home owners have become accustomed to sharing their living space with insects. However, beetle and drywood termites are insects that can cause serious damage to any structure that utilises wood as support beams, flooring and ceilings. An infestation can lead to the home, office, factory or storage facility deemed inhabitable or a hazard for employees to work in, as the structure may collapse due to infestation of beetle.


How do you know you have beetle in your home, office, restaurant or factory? Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Beetles love wooden floors, so keep a lookout for light to dark brown droppings or frass (technical term for beetle droppings) residue protruding from your floor and if blown away is followed by hole the size of a pencil nip. Frass is a clear indication of beetle activity.
  •      Roof Timber: Wood- borer/beetle infest themselves in the structural parts of the roof. The older homes are normally prone to these problems due to the timber having lost its effect if it was treated previously.
