Pest Solutions Oxfordshire - Woodworm Treatment
How will you know if you have a woodworm problem?
The usual signs are small round clean holes in the wood with fine sawdust type material Running out of the holes and falling in piles below them. You may also see the beetles. The holes are caused by the adults exiting the wood to breed. This normally takes place between May and September.
Why should woodworm be treated?
Woodworm infestation can in extreme cases cause structural damage to your property if not treated effectively. This problem does not only affect older properties but can in fact cause damage to newly constructed buildings.
What can you do before treatment?
Log where you see new signs of sawdust on your floors or other surfaces below timber in your house. Let me know exactly where it is.
How will I treat the infestation of woodworm?
I will carry out an in depth survey to ensure that it is Woodworm that is the problem. This is essential because different types of wood boring insects require different chemicals for effective treatment. Once satisfied that it is woodworm I will spray all affected areas with a micro-emulsion spray containing Permethrin. This is a contact insecticide that is especially effective in the eradication of Woodworm. I will spray all affected areas at least 3 times to ensure complete absorption of the chemicals and eradication of the insects.
What happens after treatment?
You do not need to do anything except observe and let me know if there is any future activity.
I am registered contractor with Property Guarantee Administration and as such will have issued you with a guarantee for the work carried out. The certificate guarantees the work for a period of 20 years and also covers the cost of re-treatment if that is required up to a cost of £20,000.
I have also been trained by Remedial Technical Services as a Surveyor of Timber Infestation in Buildings so you can be assured that I have identified the correct wood boring insect and applied the correct chemical to ensure eradication.
