How to treat woodworm

In order to effectively eliminate woodworm infestations, our qualified technicians are equipped with a unique woodworm treatment known as ‘Insectasure’. This specially designed insecticide formula can be applied to large areas via spray or used to treat localised infestations by brush. It has been proven to treat timbers, eliminate beetles and larvae, and is a certified woodworm treatment for floorboards, furniture, oak beams, lofts and attics.

Once the wood and timbers have been treated with InsectaSure woodworm treatment, the active ingredients work in the following ways:

  • If a female lays eggs on the surface of the timber, when the larvae hatch they will ingest the treatment and die.
  • Beetles already in the wood will ingest the treatment as they emerge out of the wood at the end of their lifecycle, killing them before they have the chance to mate and lay eggs.
  • The treatment will remain within the layers of timber, in any cracks and exit holes to prevent future infestations
  • Treated rooms can be reoccupied just one hour after treatment has dried, minimising disruption to you

Is woodworm treatment dangerous?

InsectaSure is an all purpose insecticide treatment that is low odour, low hazard, and Safety Executive (HSE) approved. This means that rooms are completely safe and can be re-occupied just one hour after the treatment has dried, minimising disruption to you.

Will woodworm treatment work in painted wood?

If the woodworm infestation is in varnished or painted wood then we have a process in place to remove the top layer to provide an absorbent surface for the woodworm fluid to 'key' to and absorb into the timber. Once this is dry a new paint or varnish can be applied over the top and will have no impact on the effectiveness of the woodworm treatment

We advise waiting twenty four hours before applying any paint to the treated surface.

Can wood or timbers damaged by woodworm be restored?

If the woodworm has structurally compromised the integrity of the timber then our skilled and qualified technicians have processes in place to either cut away and replace damaged areas, or economically repair them using our unique resin repair techniques.
