Abstract
Recently it was reported from overseas that a consignment of railway sleepers from East Africa showed heavy damage by wood-boring insects, usually referred to as borers. Concern over the resulting loss of timber and labour, not to mention the waste of shipping space, caused the Timber Control and Military Authorities to call for a technical examination of the problem which is believed to be almost worldwide at the present time. In East Africa, the problem seemed to be a new one resulting from war conditions of production, for prior to the war very few cases of serious borer damage had been recorded.
