Our Bournemouth woodworm service Woodworm

If you suspect your Bournemouth property has woodworm, the first step is to call Prokil for a survey. We will arrange a time for our expert surveyors to visit and inspect your property. The team will assess if your woodworm infestation is live and check for damp, wood rot and timber issues.

Once our survey has been completed, we will send you a report detailing our Bournemouth woodworm treatment suggestions. If your property has woodworm, we may have to remove your roof insulation or floorboards to clean dust or debris accumulated underneath. We will then apply an insecticidal formula to the wood which will kill insects on contact.  All formulas are water-based and are typically applied by spray in paste or gel formulations.

Contrary to its name, woodworm is not a worm and refers to beetles in the larvae stage. The type of beetles that infest your property will depend on the type of wood and the moisture levels. Underneath is a list of beetles that may be the cause of your Bournemouth woodworm.

  • Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium rufuvillosum)
  • Waney Edge Borer (Ernobium mollis)
  • Wood Boring Weevils
  • Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum)
  • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus)
  • Powder Post Beetle (Lyctus brunneus)
