Onguard Pest Control uses one of the most effective high pressure woodworm treatment systems currently available on the market, unlike other pest control companies that just use surface sprays.
High pressure woodworm treatment is really important to protect roof beams, where the treatment fluid needs to penetrate as deep as possible to kill the insects and to get in to all joints and crevices to prevent larvae from a new season of eggs getting access to an untreated surface and creating further structural damage to your home.
If you notice any signs of wood worm in your home, call us immediately. We can treat any woodworm infested areas and tell you what to do to prevent the problem from spreading or reoccurring. Our IPCA qualified technicians will:
- Identify the type of insect and extent of the wood worm infestation
- Whether the infestation is active or inactive
- How much structural damage, if any, has occurred
- What woodworm treatment is best for your property depending on all the above factors.
We Provide Professional Woodworm Treatment in Ireland.
There are a number of species of woodworm beetles and the method of treatment will depend on which species is attacking the timber.
Woodworm can be treated using a chemical insecticide which will be applied to the affected area to prevent further infestations. However, applying the treatment requires a lot of preparatory work.
All timbers must be cleaned down first and any roof insulation material will have to be removed temporarily so that you can get at the joists to work on them. Also this avoids the fire-risk of insulation becoming impregnated with the fluid or small polystyrene granules dissolving together.
You need to cover electric cables and the cold water storage tank. Floorboards must be lifted to get at the undersides and the joists. Depending on the situation, your furniture may also have to be dismantled and treated.
Not all wood worm needs specialised, high-pressure treatment, however some types of woodworm burrow deep, so they can cause extensive damage and require more than just surface spray. In these circumstance to treat the wood effectively, you need professional equipment which can penetrate the timber.
Depending on your specific situation, we can either surface treat timbers or use the high pressure treatment system.
