Woodworm - What are you Dealing With?

Have you found small holes in your timber with dust around them? Have you seen small beetles living and dead around your property? If so, it is likely you have an active woodworm infestation.

Woodworm is a generic term used for the larvae state of a number of different wood-boring beetles. Generally, wood-boring beetles lay their eggs during the months of April through to September which can cause serious infestations and serious structural damage.

Wood-boring beetles have some with uncanny names like the Deathwatch Beetle or House Longhorn Beetle which can make property owners panic, but in most cases it is likely you are dealing with the Common Furniture Beetle as this infests most timbers found in properties in the UK. Early identification and gaining a full understanding of the extent of your woodworm issue is key to prevent it from developing into a more serious problem. This where Rentokil Property Care can help.

As your local Woodworm control company, we combine our in depth local knowledge with high quality specialist solutions to provide our customers with treatments that protect their property for years to come.

Woodworm Treatment

The holes left on the exterior of wood by the woodworm beetle can lead to a common misconception that the issue can simply be treated using insecticide, however, this is not the case as the hole signifies that the beetle has left. 

Rentokil's Certificated Surveyors in Remedial Treatment (CSRT) ensure that each property has a tailored made treatment plan guaranteeing all infested areas are targeted and treated. Furthermore, all woodworm treatments conducted by a Property Care Association (PCA) accredited technician, leaving you and your property safe. 

We provide UK residents and businesses with three main methods of treatment: water based treatment, fogging treatment and fumigation services. These treatments can vary from property to property and even the severity of the infestation. 

DIY woodworm treatment is also available for individuals who believe they may have a localised woodworm issue in small wooden objects such as chairs.
