Woodworm Treatment

Wood boring beetles, otherwise known as woodworm, cause extensive damage to homes by laying their larvae in wooden structures. This larva feeds on wood, resulting in costly structural damage if a woodworm treatment is not completed early.

    Woodworm Treatments In London

    Our surveys undercover all the information we need to give a 30-year guaranteed treatment price. We identify the beetle species, the infested areas and the necessary plan to control woodworm.

     

    Our treatment methods include three leading solutions, a specialist woodworm insecticide application, ULV fogging treatment and fumigation, and finally, a heat treatment. Unfortunately, we cannot say which treatment technique is correct for your property without a survey; sometimes, we use a combination. Other times, a single method is enough to eradicate the problem.

     

    1. Contact: holes in your timber or wood structure can indicate that woodworm is present in your home. However, it’s important to note; cavities are caused at the end of the woodworm lifecycle, so the infestation may spread further than what is visible to an untrained eye. Call us on 0208 914 7894, email [email protected] or open our live chat to discuss your woodworm problem.
    2. Survey: After a brief discussion, we’ll arrange for a free survey of your home to identify just how deep the infestation goes. We will also recommend the best woodworm treatment to guarantee that the infestation is eradicated. 
    3. Treatment: Once you’ve agreed on the cost of our woodworm treatment in London, we’ll visit your property to carry out the removal process. Our typical treatments take one day. However, this can change depending on the size of the building and infestation.
    4. Aftercare: If you’ve followed our guaranteed treatment recommendations, we’ll be available for long-term aftercare to offer prevention advice.

    Species of Woodworm

    Woodworm is the common name for a variety of different wood boring beetles. But, no matter which woodworm species is causing you issues, you probably started by noticing holes in the wood in your home. If this is the case, it is more than likely you have one of the following species infesting your home:

     

    • Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum)
    • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus)
    • Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum)
    • Wood Boring Weevil (Pentarthrum huttoni and Euophryum confine)
    • Powderpost Beetle (Lyctus brunneus)

     

    Our specialist team will identify which species of woodworm is present at your property on our free survey. Although it is good to know which species is causing problems, the most crucial aspect is to act straight away as the woodworm treatment cost in London is minuscule compared to the structural and financial damage caused by these beetles.

     

    More than likely, you’ll have the ordinary furniture beetle on your property. In the UK, timber and heavy wood homes become infested when these beetles bore into the wood while in the larval stage. The larval feeds on wood until it reaches adult maturity, so infested properties often see holes in wood and timber structures at the end of the beetle’s lifecycle.
