Biology of Wood Borer Beetle - The Pest Control

Grown-up wood borers lay eggs in or on an appropriate tree, and the eggs bring forth into hatchlings that mine beneath the bark. A few species will burrow into the wood of the tree. Once hatchlings have completed advancement, unused grown-ups will chew an exit gap through the bark and develop. Wood borers serve an imperative biological part in encouraging tree decomposition by the gaps and channels they create within the woody tissue, phloem, and bark and by the rot parasites they bring with them.
