European House Borer Protection System

A publication of the Building Commissions Advisory Note in relation to the European House Borer (EHB) has created the need for a cost effective system to protect structural timber against EHB infestation in affected areas.

As Perth’s leading Pest Management Company, we have created the Euro-Bor Timber Protection system which allows builders to cost effectively protect their homes against the European House Borer and therefore fulfil their obligation under the Building Code of Australia.

What is Euro-Bor?
Termico Pest Managements Euro-Bor system involves the application of a water base synthetic pyrethroid, Bifenthrin to all structural timber surfaces via a low volume misting system. The solution penetrates the timber creating a ‘protection zone’ that is both repellent and toxic to the European House Borer.

The Bifenthrin solution in the Euro-Bor system is registered by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) as meeting the requirements of Hazard Class H2F against the European House Borer (Hylotrupes Bajulos) in all areas south of the Tropic of Capricorn. 

Euro-Bor Warranty
The Euro-Bor Timber Protection System provides a 25 year warranty on all treated timbers.

  • Under this warranty we guarantee to repair or replace any structural timber that has failed due to European Hose Borer attack.

     
  • This warranty is fully transferable and is not subject to the requirement of any ongoing inspection for borers.

Benefits of Euro-Bor

  • Being a water based solution, Euro-Bor has no effect on plasterboard adhesion.
     
  • As the Euro-Bor system treats timbers once they are in situ, there are no safety concerns for trades handling the timber during the construction of the roof frame.
     
  • Euro-Bor is controlled by a strict quality management system that ensures that all treatments comply with AS1604.1.
