Woodworm treatment

Once an active woodworm infestation has been identified in your property then it is essential to treat the affected area and eliminate the pests as soon as possible, otherwise you risk allowing the situation to deteriorate to the point where wood and timbers become weakened and their structural integrity is compromised.

Peter Cox has substantial experience when it comes to woodworm and our technicians are fully trained in a variety of woodworm treatment solutions, enabling them to completely and comprehensively eliminate a woodworm problem regardless of whether the infestation is in bare timber OR in varnished or painted wood.

Woodworm treatment - insectasure

Specially designed and formulated to deal with woodworm infestations, InsectaSure is an all purpose insecticide treatment that is low odour, low hazard, and Safety Executive (HSE) approved. 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

If the woodworm infestation is in varnished or painted wood then we have a process in place to lightly sand back the surface area, removing only the top surface of the paint or varnish to get a key. This is to make sure the insecticide penetrates the surface of the timber. However - full removal of existing finish is not required, meaning that historic and heritage wood can be preserved.

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.
