European house borer

European house borer (EHB) Hylotrupes bajulus is a destructive pest of seasoned coniferous timber including pine, fir and spruce. If allowed to become established it can cause major structural damage to buildings.

The European house borer team at DAFWA works to contain the EHB pest within affected areas of Western Australia via surveillance and regulation.
