Woodworm Treatment Bournemouth

Woodworm treatment in Bournemouth area is for most properties which were constructed pre 1970’s this because the pine timber used in there construction wasn’t treated like modern timber is today. Most of Bournemouth’s housing stock dates back to the Victorian building boom of 1880.
These houses built with pine floor joists and pine floorboards, the roof joists and rafters were also built from soft pine which is the preferred timber of the common furniture beetle or more commonly known as woodworm.
Woodworm treatment in Bournemouth is quite common because of this and many properties have suffered from this tiny timber pest.
There infestation can spread more rapidly in some property than others. The reason for this can depend on humidity and dampness in the building at different locations.
The roof is the most common place that woodworm attack it has the ideal conditions. Most roof spaces have higher humidity and so the timber retains a certain amount of moisture which these wood boring insect like. These tiny beetles can fly so entering the loft is the easy option. The conditions are dark, dry and have plenty of untreated wood for theses beetles to lay their eggs and start the woodworm life cycle.
The other areas woodworm like are the sub floor areas they attack timber on the ground floor which have poor sub floor ventilation. Lots of Victorian houses have had the ground around them raised with drive ways and patios this has blocked airbricks and breach dpc’s. The result is that the wooden floor timbers contain a high amount of moisture which woodworm like to infest.
The damper the conditions the worse the infestation can be causing considerable damage to floorboards as they travel along the floor joists which are sat on damp sleeper walls.
Where there is wet rot in the timbers the infestation can causes structural damage to floorboards and joists because the timber loses its strength. Many floors are replaced due wet rot and woodworm infestation in combination.

We use micro-emulsion insecticidal formulations applied by spray, brush or paste to treat woodworm in Bournemouth properties. They carry very little odor and permit re-occupation of treated areas within 1 – 2 hours. The special micro emulsion formulation leads to better penetration than is obtained with the older traditional water based emulsified preservatives. Our woodworm treatment in Bournemouth will provide the necessary control and long term protection of wood against wood boring insect infestation for many years, thereby giving confidence in any issued long term guarantee.

Before any woodworm treatment a thorough survey of the building is needed to locate the areas of active woodworm infestation. In domestic buildings it may be necessary to lift sections of floorboards and gain access to lofts and roof voids. Where timbers are heavily infested by woodworm and wood rot, and have to be cut away and replaced, our surveyor will also consider all the structural aspects of the building and will guide you through any difficult infestations.

Woodworm treatment in Bournemouth is most common between May and September during their breeding season; however woodworm can occur all year round when conditions allow the larvae to exist. All of these woodworm beetles and consume wood, and then leave when they have reached maturity. Thankfully, problems associated with woodworm typically happen between May and September during the breeding season however, this is not always the case

Woodworm is a generic term which is commonly used in reference to a number of beetles, the larvae of which are able to use wood as a source of food. These beetles lay their eggs on or in timber components within buildings, their resulting larvae feeding upon the wood whilst boring tunnels within. The life-cycle of these beetles is broadly similar but there are variations in the duration of each stage in the life-cycle. The extent of attack and resulting damage will depend upon factors relating to the species of beetles, the type of timber, moisture content and length of infestation.
