Borer bug treatment - eradicate borer

Eggs are always laid in cracks, crevices, and end grain timbers and often into exit holes, never onto sealed, painted, varnished on french polished surfaces. They come out to breed and then they will die within 3-4 weeks, if you treat at this stage you will kill all the new eggs and larvae. This means you should treat affected furniture for three consecutive years to make sure you have killed the whole life cycle.
