Our woodworm Brighton treatments

Woodworm in BrightonProkil provides treatments that will tackle woodworm in Brighton properties (we cover domestic and commercial properties). If you suspect woodworm in your property, the very first step is to call our company to arrange your survey.

On the day of the survey, our trained and experienced surveyors will inspect your property at great length for signs of woodworm. Once the inspection has been completed, we will send you a report detailing our findings and recommendations to tackle woodworm (if it has been identified).

If woodworm has been positively identified in your home, we will suggest our Brighton woodworm treatment. The first step will involve removing the roofing insulation and/or floorboards in your property so that we can clean and clear away any dirt or debris that has accumulated over the years. Once this step has been completed, we will apply a specialised water-based insecticidal formula. This will kill beetles as soon as they come into contact with said formula.

Contrary to its name, woodworm refers to beetles in the larvae stage and does not include worms. The type of woodworm that affects your property will depends on the moisture levels in the wood and the type of wood in your property. Common beetles include:

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

  • Damaged or crumbling timber
