Integrated Wood-borer control
Woodborers are pests, which live on the starch of the wood and convert it
into powder state, thus making the entire wooden structure hallow and weak.
These pests spread very fast, as they are air borne. Even the larva of the
woodborer travels through air. Fast prevention of this is better than cure.
Method of Treatment:
The treatment method adopted is by injecting a special formulation which has
got a flushing effect making the insect come out in the open and die unlike
with the conventional chemicals which are used by the other pest controllers.
This formulation is injected into the holes made by the insects in the timber. .
This not only kills the insect but also the larva in the wood and might hatch
any time of 8 years of period.
This is done with a special smoke generator which contains cypermythrin 3%
as an active ingredient resulting in flushing out all crawling creeping and
Flying insects. Its oral Toxicity rat LD50- 3061.22 mg. /kg. It is virtually non
toxic and thus safe for humans. The area should be fumigated at least 7 hrs.
Frequency of the Fumigation depends on the infestation.
Dusting is done with inorganic compounds or Deltamythrin 2.5 WP. With all
these three methods we can bring down heavy infestation by Cockroaches.
Fumigation is done initially for the first month to bring down the infestation
