Considering this, does turpentine kill wood borer?
Treatment of any bare wood can be done with solvent based insecticidal borer fluid. Solvent based insecticides can be used with turpentine oil or kerosene as it will penetrate deep into the timber and will kill tunnel making larvae as they eat the wood.
Also, will bleach kill bugs in wood? The bleach will seep into the wood and kill any parasites harboring inside. Once 24 hours has elapsed, remove the wood and rinse it thoroughly. You will now need to soak the wood again.
