Stethoscopes are sometimes used to diagnose an infestation of
active woodborers. The major problem of detection of wood destroying beetles is
their inconstant activities. Larvae could be inactive for months before again
start to munching a wood. The missing munching sound could give you a wrong
overview about the real situation. So in some cases it is necessary to think
about automatic recording systems to show activities on spectrogram. Sound
approach could be expensive and time-consuming work.
Second approach of determining position of larvae is professional dowsing.
This method is not dependant on larvae inconstant activities and missing
munching sound. You get immediate results with no wood surface destruction. But
only skilled professionals can determine accurate position of active or inactive
larvae with high precision.
