Our Woodworm Treatment
Our customers in Wolverhampton discovered an active Death-watch beetle infestation to some incredibly large, very old timbers!
Death-watch beetles (Xestobium Rufivillosum) is one of the largest wood boring beetles with a bore hole of 2-3mm, which is bigger than the Common Furniture beetle (Anobiu Punctatum). Obviously, larger holes mean greater damage to the timber. Different beetles prefer different woods and typically Death-watch attack wide poured hardwoods such as oak. This means Death-watch infestations are often found in structural timbers of very old buildings, as was the case here. Our technicians pulled back plasterboard panels to expose the extent of the infestation. We used a combination of timber preservation gel treatment and injectable treatment to prevent further attacks.
There are a number of different types woodworm beetles. The one that you have can dictate the type and extent of your problem. It is also advisable to investigate and solve possible dampness issues as dry wood is not usually affected and damp wood may be re-infected again later.
If you feel that your property may de suffering from any kind woodworm infestation or dampness issue; get in touch with our team to arrange a no-obligation survey, to see how we can help you.

We found rising damp problem whilst decorating our lounge. We called several local trades men; none of whom filled us with any confidence on their visit. Then found this company on Yell.com. The surveyor promptly came out to visit us and immediately gave his diagnosis and solution. The job was carried out a few days after, we were incredibly happy with the work and the lads went out of their way to make sure everywhere was cleaned and left as it was before they arrived.
