Is Burnt Wood Pest Resistant?

In the face of growing interest in natural materials, wood is often chosen to decorate our spaces due to its warmth and closeness to nature. However, a fundamental question arises: is wood durable and resistant to pests?

Is Burnt Wood Pest Resistant?

In this text, we will show that boards charred using the Shou Sugi Ban method are not only beautiful but also incredibly resistant to the action of bark beetles and other insects.


No more wood-eating insects

Pests that ravage trees, known as xylophages (wood-eaters), can be very difficult to get rid of, making them a real problem. Moreover, they reduce the aesthetics of wooden furniture or facades due to the appearance of unsightly holes and the powder that comes out of them. To avoid such surprises, it’s worth choosing materials that are resistant to their action. This is where charred boards using the Shou Sugi Ban technology come in handy.

“Unattractive” to Pests

The process of charring wood prevents rotting and decay and also makes the material unattractive to pests. This technique makes the wood hostile to microorganisms and insects, such as bark beetles, which often choose wood as their habitat. Our products, before being placed in the oven, are thoroughly inspected, and the charring process at temperatures up to 1200 degrees Celsius makes the wood “unattractive” to pests.
