    Signs of borer presence

    Borers are usually found in trees. So, if you have trees around your house, you must be at risk. Look out for possible signs and symptoms of borers if you suspect a borer infestation. The signs and symptoms of borer presence are as follows:
    • Damage of wood– If you witness a lot of damage on the outer parts of the trees, that is wood. Then, these can be due to the presence of borers. The damage caused is generally by woodpeckers. Wondering why we are talking about woodpeckers when we are suspecting a borer? Well, woodpeckers feed on borer larvae. When they find borers in your trees, they start pecking at them and damaging the outer bark. 
    • Galleries of larvae– Larval galleries can be visible in the cambium of the tree. This is one of the important signs of borer presence. These galleries are s-shaped and are found just below the bark of the tree. These galleries of larvae cause damage to the tree and also lead to its death. 
    • Holes- Holes in the tree are a very common sign of borer presence. These are usually small and most difficult to locate. The holes in the trees are usually used by borers to exit from the tree. Holes are caused due to two reasons mainly-
    1. Because of the entry of borer, when they dig holes to enter
    2. When they need to exit the tree
    • Crown dieback- The most visible symptom of borer presence is crown dieback. Dieback is nothing but the condition when the ability of the tree to pass on the water and nutrients to all its parts are lost. However, it takes many years for the crown dieback to be noticed. Until then, the damage would be done by the borers. This is caused extensively due to larvae feeding. The only solution for the prevention of dieback is to check for holes and other signs.
    • Basal sprouting- Basal sprouting is nothing but the tree starts to grow new branches from its trunk. Although it is a very rare phenomenon, this can happen due to the borer infestation. Borers cause a lot of stress to the tree that in turn results in such problems. If you witness sprouts appearing from your tree trunk, it must be assumed that it is because of borer infestation. 

    Areas and objects that can be affected by borer

    Borers can affect a lot of objects. However, most importantly, they affect wooden objects, especially trees. Trees are the prime things for borer infestation or attack. Other wooden objects such as furniture, chairs, tables, etc can also be affected by borers.
