Pest control & treatment for woodworms London

As the name suggests, woodworms feast on wood. In other words, this type of pest can cause serious (and expensive) structural damage to your property. In any case, if you have heard sounds coming from your house that seem to come from nowhere, along with seeing holes in wooden beams and furniture, congratulations! Woodworms are very likely to be the cause of that.

In such cases, it would be best to rely on a pest professional, unless you are planning on investing in a substantial home renovation.

How to prevent woodworm infestation

  • Woodworm-infested furniture should be disposed of as soon as possible to prevent the infestation from spreading.
  • Maintain good ventilation in your home. Woodworms prefer areas where there is high humidity.
  • Prevent an attack by wood-boring beetles by installing insect traps during the summer. As a result, you will prevent the emergence of a rapid infestation by eliminating the woodworms' potential parents.

Frequently asked questions

  • Q: How can I pay for the pest controller’s work?

    A: Your card may be charged for the full price of the service immediately upon booking or at any time before the service begins.

  • Q: How do I know if my home is infested with woodworms?

    A: If the surface of your furniture, floorboards, or roof joists is perforated by several tiny holes, this doesn’t necessary mean that the bugs are still active.

  • Q: How do I deal with woodworms?

    A: The common furniture beetle is relatively harmless and can be treated with coats of water-based boron that can be either brushed or sprayed on.

  • Q: How do I keep woodworms from returning?

    A: Maintaining low humidity levels and ensuring decent air ventilation is a good start. You can also purchase a timber moisture metre, whose probe you can use to determine the humidity levels within the timber.

  • Q: What should I do if I want to change the time of my woodworm treatment appointment?

    A: You can easily make any changes through the dashboard section, once you log into your Fantastic account. If you haven’t got one yet, it’s really easy to create it at your convenience.

  • Q: Does bleach get rid of woodworms?

    A: By applying bleach, vinegar, or even paint over the active woodworm holes, you may be able to treat woodworm infestations on your own. Nevertheless, these methods aren't proven and could result in further damage.
