Woodworm infestations is a general term used to describe the destructive efforts of any beetle or infect that burrows into and damages wood. Once a common problem, woodworm is less common today but can still occur and in commercial buildings, this can be a problem, especially if the business carries out any work using wood products. Eradicure offer full woodworm diagnosis and treatment to ensure that these unpleasant little bugs are removed from your commercial premises.
Spotting signs of woodworm
The key to getting treatment for a woodworm infestation is to spot the signs as soon as possible. However, even if you miss the signs and the infestation becomes more severe, we still have options available to deal with it. Typical signs of wood boring insects include:
- Fresh holes in timber where the insects enter and exit
- Tunnels through wood
- Dust from the boring process
- Dead beetles or insects
- Wood that is crumbling, weak or damaged that was previously strong
If you spot any of these signs within your business or a property you are working on, then it is advisable to contact us immediately. We can then carry out an assessment as to what the nature of the insect causing the infestation is and what the best course of treatment then is.
Dealing with woodworm infestations
Once we have ascertained what the cause of the infestation is, we can then set a course of action to eradicate it and to prevent reoccurrence. There are various treatments available including water based, fogging treatment and fumigations. We can assess the best method including the bug in question and also the needs of the business to ensure disruption is minimal.
In addition to dealing with the infestation, we can also assist with any renovation work required to deal with the damage caused by the woodworm. We offer a full property renovation service to help restore the building and repair the damage.
