Description of Borers (Buprestidae):
Borers are a class of wood-boring insects that are among the most destructive to trees and shrubs. Technically speaking, most "borers" are just the larvae of certain beetles and moths. They feed under the bark of wood through a series of tunnels. They only rarely infest healthy plants, preferring plants that are stressed by things like drought, sunscald, injury, or soil compaction.
