Woodworm Control

Woodworm Treatment

Abate Pest Management Services has provided woodworm treatments since 1999.

Woodworm can be a major issue to both residential and commercial properties. Generally, you find holes in timber with dust below or in a building survey, you are informed that there are wood-boring insects present. There may be a chance of a woodworm infestation in our home. 

Woodworm can be introduced into the house in second-hand furniture or even chopped logs for your fire,  but the beetles are also capable of flying in through a window from nearby branches of trees. They may then attack floorboards, joinery and, more seriously, structural timbers such as rafters and joists.

We recommend a thorough free site survey by one of our skilled surveyors to establish the pest and the level of the problem before recommending the correct application.

Our expert woodworm technicians will carry out a survey, discuss your problem and provide a quote together with details of our recommended treatment. Sorry, we don’t treat furniture.

Useful Information

Woodworm is the general term used to describe all wood boring pests. The most common is the furniture beetle. The adult furniture beetle is a small brown insect which flies quite readily. The female lays her eggs on rough unpolished wood and the grubs bore straight into the wood leaving no trace until they emerge 3 years or so later. This is usually between May and September.

Other wood boring insects include:

  • Deathcwatch Beetle
  • House Longhorn
  • Powder Post Beetle
  • Wood Boring Weevils
  • Ambrosia Beetle
  • Fan Bearing Wood Borer
  • Wood Borer and Wharf Borer
