InsectaSure Woodworm Treatment

InsectaSure is our unique woodworm treatment for bare timber.

The problem:
Woodworm is a collective term used to describe wood-boring insects that lay their eggs in wood and timbers, and can cause serious structural damage throughout their life cycle. Their attacks are varied, dependant on the type of beetle and its life span, so accurate identification by a surveyor is key to ensuring the correct treatment. Once an active woodworm infestation has been positively identified our InsectaSure service for treating bare wood can commence.

In some properties, it may be necessary to lift floorboards and gain access to roof voids. In many cases, areas requiring treatment are obscured by an accumulation of dust and old building debris, these must all be cleaned before treatment. Roof insulation will also need to be lifted to gain access to the timbers.

Woodworm Treatment – How InsectaSure works

On bare wood surfaces Peter Cox technicians will use the latest proven insecticidal formulations, providing a barrier against woodworm infestation.

The fluid works in two ways. Firstly if a female lays eggs on the surface of the timber, when the larvae hatch they will ingest the preservative and die. Secondly, beetles already in the wood will ingest the preservative as they emerge out of the wood at the end of their lifecycle, killing them.

Where structurally necessary, heavily infested timbers will be cut away and replaced, or economically repaired by skilled joiners using resin repair techniques.
