Woodworm Treatment

WOODWORM TREATMENTS

WHAT IS A WOODWORM INFESTATION?

Woodworm infestations are caused by wood-eating larvae, and an infestation can occur in both residential and commercial buildings.

Wood-boring beetles are able to use wood as a food source, therefore causing damage to the timbers. Even new timbers are susceptible due to the high sugar content found in the sapwood of young trees.

With the current high demand for timber, trees are not allowed the growing time necessary that leads to a greater natural resistance to wood-boring beetle & fungal attacks.

WHAT IS THE IMPACT OF UNTREATED WOODWORM?

The benefits of treatment are eradicating the beetles before they pose more of a problem to your property. If woodworm is left untreated, it can cause significant problems to your property - including the possibility of it causing structural issues.

It is important to have a specialist assess and determine the species of insect causing any infestation, as this will have an impact on the treatment required.
