Firstly, we carry out a full survey of the your premises to assess the extent and severity of the woodworm problem.
We then design a tailored treatment for your premises. All types of woodworm infestation can be treated no matter how long or short a time the problem has been present.
To treat woodworm effectively one section of the life cycle of the beetle needs to be targeted. The best area to target is the larval stage. This stages does most of the damage and their location is ascertained by our survey.
By using water-based woodworm treatments the timbers can be protected in layers, as the chemical soaks into the timbers, killing existing infestations but also protecting against any future outbreaks. This type of woodworm treatment is also much safer for people and pets who might be in the vicinity of the treatment area.
At certain times other types of woodworm treatment may be needed due to environmental issues. This will be discussed and explained to you by our specially trained surveyors and technicians.
Woodworm is the general term given to the larval stage of a number of different wood boring insects. A wood worm infestation can cause serious structural issues if left untreated for any length of time
Adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks in wood. In the wild this doesn’t cause problems but in a house or premises this can be in roof timbers, floors, furniture and any wooden objects. The larvae hatch from the eggs and burrow deeply into the wood and begin feeding. This creates a series of tunnels in the woods structure over a period of years and greatly reduces the structural integrity. In roof timbers this can be a major issue.
Don’t panic! Holes are not necessarily a sign of woodworm infestation. They are what’s known as “flight holes” left over after the beetles have worked their way through the wood and literally taken flight!
Woodworm Treatments are essential to rid yourself of the problem. It is essential that you get a professional service who can offer a 20 Year guarantee on all treatments carried out
It’s impossible to say as our specialists will need to assess the extent of the problem before they can indicate the cost of treatment.
No, woodworm is not infectious but can spread to other nearby wood.
