    Best way to treat wood-boring beetle infestation


    My home is suffering a wood-boring beetle infestation. We know that at least the stairs and parts of the floorboards in several downstairs rooms have been infested. How can we treat this as effectively and quickly as possible?

    "You can buy a proprietary wood treatment which will usually require a flood coat. Any seriously infected areas that could cause structural issues etc will require renewal"
