The term ‘Woodworm’ is a generic description given to the infestation of timber by the wood-eating larvae of various species of beetle. Whichever type of beetle maybe involved, the principles in treating woodworm are the same. If any infestations are left untreated, this can eventually lead to serious structural damage. The timbers that form your roof structure are a prime example of the perfect environment for woodworm to flourish and be left undetected for long periods of time.
Once we have established that an infestation is actually ‘active‘, the next step is to confirm the extent of insecticidal treatment required. In most cases, treatment can be applied by simply spraying or brushing the infested timbers with an insecticide.
