If your woodworm problem only affects small wooden items, such as a chair or musical instrument, you may be able to "do it yourself" using our Rentokil DIY woodworm treatment products. Our products have been perfected over our 60 years of experience in woodworm control and are safe and effective. They can be bought in any leading supermarket, DIY and hardware store, or in garden and trade centres around the country.
