Museums & antiquities

We understand that you need specialist care.

Museums, art galleries and antique specialists  are vulnerable to a wide range of pest problems:

  • Artwork, books, textiles and other soft organic matter are vulnerable to moths, booklice and textile pests.
  • Rats and mice will gnaw wood and other hard objects and will shred textiles and soft materials for nesting.
  • Furniture and other wooden objects are at risk from wood damaging beetle.
  • Wooden church lecterns and pews are also very susceptible to wood damaging beetles.
