There are a number of wood boring insects that attack timber in properties in the UK with the most common being the ‘Common Furniture Beetle’ or the ‘wood boring weevil’ that attacks both soft woods and hard woods. Identifying which woodworm is present through a survey is extremely important as this determines which woodworm treatment is needed to get rid of the woodworm from the property. Not all timber infestations require expensive treatment and the removal of the damp is enough to destroy an infestation depending on the type of beetle.

If you have any concerns regarding a timber infestation please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a survey and quotation carried out by our CSRT surveyor (Certified Surveyor in Remedial Treatments).
