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.

"My company recently relocated to a larger building due to expansion. However, after a short time we suspected we might have a damp problem due to a musty damp smell. We contacted Prokil who attended our offices the next day and confirmed our worst fears. Prokil provided us with a competitive quote which we were happy to accept and the works were carried out within the week. I would recommend Prokil any time. Many thanks,"

We felt happy to leave them with the key to lock up if they left before we got home. They were meticulously clean and tidy, even to the point of rinsing their coffee cups at the end of the day! Please pass on our thanks to them all. We have had very prompt and professional service from you all at Prokil, and will be happy to recommend your company to others. Best wishes"
