Expert Woodworm treatment

Our team of expertly trained and BPCA licensed technicians prioritizes rapid response to woodworm infestations to ensure the safety and comfort of our clients. Recognizing the severe effects that woodworm damage can have on both property value and ongoing maintenance expenses, we are dedicated to providing practical solutions to prevent these problems.

Woodworm Larve

Woodworm infestations, driven by the larvae of wood-boring beetles, present a genuine risk to wooden structures. Without proper attention, they can weaken buildings and furniture over time, potentially causing serious damage. It’s crucial to promptly recognize the signs and involve licensed professionals for effective treatment. This proactive approach not only safeguards against further deterioration but also helps avoid the expenses associated with extensive repairs.

If you suspect a woodworm infestation, acting swiftly and efficiently is essential. Here’s a practical, easy-to-follow guide tailored to tackle these pests in British homes:


1. Spot the Signs: Look for small, round holes in wooden surfaces or a powdery residue known as frass. Recognising these early indications is vital.


2. Consult the Experts: When you notice any of the above signs, it’s time to reach out to a qualified exterminator. These professionals, with their precise treatments such as insecticidal sprays or thorough fumigation, are your best bet in eradicating the larvae and preventing further damage. Trust in their expertise to handle the situation effectively.


3. Adhere to Advice: Following your exterminator’s instructions is essential. This might include vacating your property during the treatment to ensure everyone’s safety and protecting your pets and valuables.


4. Address Dampness: Since woodworms favour moist environments, resolving damp issues in your home is crucial for preventing future outbreaks.


5. Regular Checks and Maintenance: Take charge of the situation by establishing a routine for inspecting and maintaining wooden structures in your home. This proactive approach not only helps keep your property woodworm-free in the long term but also makes you feel responsible for your home’s upkeep.


By implementing these straightforward steps, you can effectively manage woodworm problems and maintain the structural integrity of your home.
