Our Reading woodworm treatments

Woodworm in ReadingAt Prokil, we supply woodworm Reading treatments for domestic and commercial properties. If you suspect that there is woodworm in your home or workplace, contact our team today for a survey. One of our expert surveyors will inspect your property at great length before sending you a report outlining the problems and required woodworm treatments.

Should your property have woodworm, we may have to remove the floorboards or roofing insulation on your property. Afterwards, we will clean all debris and dirt from the affected areas before we apply our specialised insecticidal formula to the affected wood. This is a water-based formula that is typically applied in a spray form.

Woodworm is not a type of worm and refers to a group of beetles in the larvae stage. The type of wood and moisture levels in your timbers will attract different beetles and this will vary from property-to-property. We have listed common beetles underneath:

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

Signs that your property has woodworm

Woodworm is sometimes confused with other timber-related conditions. To avoid confusion, we recommend that you contact a timber specialist like Prokil. The tell-tale signs of woodworm include:

  • In the summer there will be dead beetles
  • Crumbling or damaged timber
  • Fine dust and powder (frass) in or near the timber holes
  • Round or oval timber holes with clean edges – hole size will vary on species
  • Galleries or wood tunnels
