A woodworm infestation in the home can cause serious damage to structural and decorative timber. Woodworm treatment services from Peter Cox’s woodworm specialists ensure that woodworm damage to property is minimised and the risk of future woodworm attacks is curtailed.
There are a number of different species of woodworm, which attack different kinds of timber and need different conditions in which to breed. Whichever type of woodworm is attacking your property, however, the effects are the same – woodworm larvae boring through your timber, potentially causing vast amounts of damage and weakening the structure.
Woodworm Identification and Extermination
Woodworm treatment from Peter Cox woodworm specialists is a three-step process:
- Our experts must complete a woodworm survey to assess the affected areas and the type of woodworm infestation affecting your property.
- This may necessitate the lifting of floorboards or roof insulation and the cleaning of dust or debris.
- We then apply an insecticidal formula to the wood which eliminates the insects on contact as they pass through the timber. This method of woodworm treatment allows the homeowner to reoccupy the room after just one hour. Our water-based formula is generally applied by spray but can also be applied by brush or injection in gel or paste formulations.
We may deem it necessary to remove and replace severely infested timbers as part of the woodworm treatment. For more information on our timber replacement methods, see our timber repairs page.

“" The work was booked in very quickly from the surveyor’s visit and the technician came on a Saturday to complete the work. The office was very helpful in trying to facilitate this for me. I live in Newcastle and it has been hardwork trying to organise work to be completed on my house in Leeds. However Peter Cox made it very easy.”
