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.
