Woodworm treatment is only required if the infestation is active, although it might be tricky to tell if it’s active when there are no visual clues. The woodworm larvae tend to live deep in the timber and only make a recognisable exit hole once it’s a mature beetle.
If you want to fully get rid of the woodworm problem, the only effective option is to use the correct chemical insecticides. Our experienced preservation specialists will apply a water based insecticidal fluid to the surface of the wood. This fluid is designed to target the larvae entering the wood as well as emerging beetles. In some cases, timber structures might be beyond repair and must be completely replaced with new pre-treated timbers.
Our qualified preservation surveyor will closely investigate the affected area and measure the scale of the problem. At Richardson and Starling, we only supply experienced surveyors who are highly trained in all types of property problems that could affect your property such as woodworm, rot or damp. This means that our surveyor will be able to complete the survey and give the appropriate remedial recommendations no matter what problem is identified.
