Wood-boring beetle and their larvae, also known as woodworm, live and lay their eggs inside house woodwork. They feed on wood material, boring holes which cause not only cosmetic but structural damage as well.
INSPECTION: For a successful woodworm treatment, we start with a careful top-to-bottom property check. We determine the type of woodworm and the severity of the infestation in order to choose the most appropriate eradication method. TREATMENT: Once the problem has been identified, your woodworm specialist will proceed with the proper treatment technique in order to destroy the infestation. This usually includes injecting the timber-based items in the property with a powerful repellent. Our solutions have a long-lasting residual effect and will protect your wooden materials from further problems. PREVENTION: Treating woodworm isn’t the end of our job. Once we remove the threat, your woodworm specialist will give you some valuable tips and pointers on how to protect your property from future infestations. If you’ve booked our insured service, we will be able to visit you another two times for the next three months - free of charge - this will ensure a complete eradication of the woodworm population.

Woodworm Damage
  • Damage to antiques and furniture made of wood
  • Structural weakening of roof timbers and other softwood elements
  • Damage to hardwood flooring and other wide-pored wood elements
Damage type and severity are highly dependable on the variety of wood and the woodworm species infesting it. Most of the times you can spot the signs of infestations such as holes, wood dust and even tiny beetles emerging. In other cases, the wood-boring insects tunnel through the centre part of the timber, causing more damage than it can appear from the outside - if untreated, woodworm can cause a great amount of destruction.
