German term or phrase: Bebeilung
Text: Altberliner Satteldach mit Ziegeleindeckung und Dachpappe auf dem Flachdachbereich; Dachrinnen und Fallrohre außen liegend aus Zinkblech; keine Gauben, jedoch alte Dachflächenfenster; keine Blitzschutzanlage; das Dach ist nicht ausgebaut.
Es ist stellenweise ein alter Holzschutzanstrich am Dachstuhl erkennbar, ebenso stellenweise alte **Bebeilung**; teilweise Folie unterhalb der Dachpfannen gespannt.

ax damage as a result of pest control ? Oder gibt es dafür einen feststehenden englischen Ausdruck?

Vielen Dank im Voraus!

Looks like a corrective measure in this case - bekämpfende Maßnahme - hewing away wood to remove infected wood.

But your text says "alte Bebeilung" and there's nothing in the text you've given us to indicate there's insect damage.

The client confirmed that this is a possible sign for pest control treatment, but didn't want to interpret it as such in the target document.

Notes to answerer
Asker: http://www.holzfragen.de/seiten/dachstuhl_hausbock.html - siehe letzte beiden Paragraphen/ laesst das im DD nicht auf alten Schaedlingsbefall schliessen?

Asker: You are correct, unless "Bebeilung" is a common treatment for insect infested trusses. Alte Bebeilung would indicate a treatment after the house was built (which was in 1908) since it is detected only in some arease which would mean this is not a case where the beams of the trusses were axe-hewn at the time of installation. Just want to make sure I am getting this right as it would have significant implications in regards to the assessment of the building.
