Here at Injecta Dampcourse, we provide a variety of woodworm treatments for timber. Beetles are known to feed on timber which damages the wood, and this means that an effective treatment is needed to repair any problems. Contact our team in Leicester, Leicestershire, today to discuss our wide range of solutions in more detail.
The larvae of beetles that feed on timber are the reason why woodworm holes form. Moreover, larger holes form on the surface of the timber when the adult beetle emerges from the timber to mate.
There are many species of woodworm, and the precise method of treatment will depend on which species is attacking the timber.
By far the most common species of woodworm in the UK is the Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum). Other types of woodworm common to the UK include the Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium refovillosum, the House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus), and the Powderpost beetle (Lyctus brunneus). Although the Powderpost Beetle and the Common Furniture Beetle can be treated the same, the House Longhorn and Deathwatch Beetle infestations require more extensive treatment.
