How will I treat the infestation of woodworm?
I will carry out an in depth survey to ensure that it is Woodworm that is the problem. This is essential because different types of wood boring insects require different chemicals for effective treatment. Once satisfied that it is woodworm I will spray all affected areas with a micro-emulsion spray containing Permethrin. This is a contact insecticide that is especially effective in the eradication of Woodworm. I will spray all affected areas at least 3 times to ensure complete absorption of the chemicals and eradication of the insects.
What happens after treatment?
You do not need to do anything except observe and let me know if there is any future activity. Warwickshire Shipston Woodworm Treatment
