Woodworm treatments typically involve the use of insecticides, which can be harmful if they are not used or handled properly. However, if the treatment is applied correctly, the risk of harm to humans is generally low.
It’s important to follow all safety precautions and use protective equipment when applying any woodworm treatment, including wearing gloves, protective clothing, and a respirator to avoid inhaling any fumes or dust. In addition, it’s important to keep children and pets away from the treated area until the treatment has fully dried and any residual chemicals have dissipated.
