Professional Denton Woodworm Treatment

Woodworm occurs when a wooden object becomes infested with the larvae of beetles, which can be caused by several species in the UK. If left untreated, any affected timber would eventually degrade and become useless, leaving replacement as the only option.

An infested property can be damaging, costly and even dangerous, especially in the case of affected wooden support structures such as joists and floorboards. Therefore, it’s important to know the signs and hazards of an infestation, the information of which can be found in this article.

Following on from this, you can make an informed decision on whether you need the services of a pest control business such as Young’s Pest Control, a company that surveys and offers treatment for woodworm such as Denton woodworm treatment furniture spray.

The types of beetle found in the UK

Woodborer, Oligomerus brunneus, extreme close-upting• Common Furniture beetle

This is the most likely culprit of any woodworm infestation in the UK and, despite its name, can affect a range of structures that are made of both hard and soft wood. Much like the Powderpost beetle, another species known to infest UK properties, the effects of this beetle are less severe than some of the other species because the tunnels they make in wood are smaller.

• House Longhorn & Deathwatch beetle

These two species inflict greater damage on wooden objects, owing to the fact that their larvae are larger than that of the Common Furniture beetle and therefore bore larger holes.

Identifying any of these species is vital in determining the severity of a woodworm infestation, which therefore means the knowledge and expertise of our professionals at Young’s Pest Control are vital to successfully survey an infestation and effectively treat the problem with Denton woodworm treatment spray.

The signs that you might have an infestation

• Holes in the affected wood from entry points and exit points. The fresh exit points will be covered in fine dust.
• Dead or live beetles close-by that are either laying eggs or looking for a mate, the latter of which usually occurs from May to October.
