Woodworm in Guildford and Crawley

What is Woodworm?

Woodworm is the name given to beetles which infest timbers. The species of the wood-boring larvae depends on the type of wood that is being infested. Woodworm beetles can infiltrate anything from furniture pieces to floorboards, structural beams to rafters and joists. The extent of the damage that untreated woodworm can cause can be detrimental to a property, particularly if the structural timbers are the nesting home.

If you think you might need woodworm treatment in Guildford or Crawley, contact Prokil for a woodworm survey. We will review the damage and accurately diagnose the cause and treatment that will help.

Signs of Woodworm

Luckily, there are common signs of woodworm that make it possible to notice if there is a woodworm problem in your property. These include:

  • Holes in timber or wooden furniture
  • Bore dust – often found under or adjacent to the infested timber
  • Crumbling or damaged wood
  • Dead beetles – these can be found near the affected wood or by windowsills
  • Tunnels in timber

Woodworm Treatment in Guildford and Crawley

Before we provide any treatment, our woodworm specialists will assess the damage and determine what treatment is needed. The lifting of floorboards or roof insulation may be required, as well as cleaning dust or debris.

We will apply an insecticidal formula to the wood which works by eliminating the insects on contact as they pass through the timber. This woodworm treatment is a water-based formula that is generally applied by spray but is available as a paste or gel which we would then apply by brush or injection.

This method of woodworm treatment allows property owners to re-enter the vicinity after just two hours once the application is complete.

Book a woodworm survey with us today so we can determine the best solution of woodworm treatment for you.
