Wood Worm

WOOD WORM TREATMENT

Woodworm is a generic description given to the infestation of a wooden item (normally part of a dwelling or the furniture in it) by the wood-eating larvae/grubs of one of many species of beetle. Whichever type of beetle maybe involved, the principals in treating woodworm are the same. First you have to identify if treatment is need as some heavily infested wood may be rotten and will need replacing.

Woodworm treatment is designed to disrupt at least one of the lifecycle stages of the beetles. The treatment targets the young larvae in the timber. Any eggs and beetles leave in cracks, crevices or holes of the treated timbers will not survive, therefore breaking the woodworm lifecycle.

Our method of treatment is a water based treatment - these are designed to minimise the exposure of people, pets and the environment to chemicals used within our treatments. To assist with long-term protection the solution will remain within the layers of the timber, cracks, crevices and  holes to prevent any future infestations becoming established.
