Woodworm identification and treatment specialist for Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and York
Woodworm is really a beetle and it’s the larval stage, which causes the damage as it feeds on wood.
Of course, it really evolved in the forest and has usually made a mistake, infesting your roof or floor timbers. The holes seen in wood, like those above, are made when the woodworm adult emerges to mate and lay eggs.
Common Furniture Beetle can eventually cause significant structural damage to property, particularly if the infested timbers are damp.
Our technicians are certificated in safe and correct application of modern insecticides which kill the insects and stop re-infestation. We survey for woodworm all over Yorkshire and have succesfully treated woodworm in hundreds of Yorkshire's houses, including many listed buildings and period properties.
There are quite a few beetles which attack building timbers, including Death Watch Beetle, Powder Post Beetle and several others; we know them all and can specify the best treatment in each case. Often ‘woodworm’ is associated with decay like wet rot or dry rot so a full and detailed timber survey is essential, so that all factors are taken into consideration and the problem permanently resolved.
Our CSRT qualifications and Property Care Association membership are your assurance that we can recognise these problems and recommend safe and effective treatment – we guarantee treatment for 20 years and have been doing this for over 26 years so far.
Domestic woodworm surveys are available for a small fee, with larger and more complex surveys like Churches, commercial buildings, perhaps using micro-drilling and such, available subject to negotiation.
