Woodworm treatment

After one of our experienced Technicians has carried out a thorough inspection, assessing the extent of any problem, the type of woodworm involved and determined if the infestation is active, an appropriate woodworm treatment will be recommended.

We treat woodworm issues in properties of all ages and sizes.

All woodworm treatments are specially designed to disrupt at least one of the lifecycle stages of the beetles. Our treatment targets the young larvae buried in the wood.

How to get rid of woodworm

Rentokil Technicians use specialist treatments to deal with woodworm problems. All Rentokil Technicians will inspect your property looking for signs of a woodworm infestation, including live adult woodworm and larvae and holes in the wood. After a thorough inspection of your property, your Technician will recommend the best treatment solution for unique situation.

The most effective treatment can vary depending on the species of the woodworm, the severity of the infestation, the construction of the structure and other factors.

If you’re in need of woodworm treatment, please contact us at 877-690-2115 or contact us online to schedule a complimentary inspection of your property with a technician in your local area.

  • Water based treatment - Designed to minimise the exposure of people, pets and the environment to chemicals used within our treatments. To assist with long-term protection the solution will remain within the layers of the timber, cracks, crevices and flight holes to prevent any future infestations becoming established. Our treatments also help in treating fungal decay. 

  • Fumigation - The fumigation process effectively eliminates all life stages of wood boring insect infestations.

  • Entotherm Heat Treatment - Rentokil’s Entotherm Heat Pod eliminates all types bed bugs and other insects through the application of heat within a unique, Rentokil designed, Heat Pod. This chemical-free heat remedy reaches all areas of insect infested materials placed within the Heat Pod. It only requires a single treatment to solve an insect pest problem quickly with minimum disruption.

With a lifecycle of at least 3 to 4 years there may still be some beetles that reach adulthood and emerge from the timber after treatment. This is known as “post treatment emergence.” Any eggs that these “post treatment emergence” beetles leave in cracks, crevices or old flight holes of the treated timbers will not survive, which means that the woodworm lifecycle will have been broken.
