These may attract termites and wood infesting beetles which can cause severe damage and may go unnoticed for years. There are a variety of different species of each, which require differing methods of treatment and action taken will also be determined by the type of wood they have infested. Bare wood in its natural form without any stain, paint or varnish will require a borate treatment to remove beetles of any description however it is actually their larvae that will be responsible for most of the damage.
