Woodworm treatments company Southend

What is a woodworm and how does woodworm infestation occurs?

Woodworm refers to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle, rather than one particular species. The most common species found is the Common Furniture Beetle.

Woodworm usually enters your property by flying in, or from other timber that has already been infested.

How do you know if you have a woodworm infestation and need woodworm treatment?

These are some indications by which you can understand if a woodworm infestation has occurred or not:

Small round holes in your woodwork, similar to the holes in a dart board. Fine, powdery dust around these holes (this is known as frass). Crumbly edges to boards. Adult beetles emerging from the holes or present around the house. Even if you can’t see any holes, you might also find frass escaping from the back or underside of old furniture. Again this suggests active woodworm. 

Woodworm effects timber: Timbers in our properties are under constant threat of attack from insects, fungi or both. Floorboards, roof joists, skirting boards and door frames can all be affected by infestation or woodworm and if left untreated an attack can have devastating consequences on a building. This is why you need help from the best woodworm treatments company Southend can offer.

Woodworm treatment for your property: We use many different treatments for woodworm infestation. Certain species respond to light applications of wood preservative whilst larger more penetrative beetles require the application of thicker deep treatment paste and injection.
