Woodworm Treatment

Infestation Treatment and Control..

Specialist Restoration Services have fully trained surveyors in the identification of all woodworm and rot attack.

Timbers in the structure of a building with any form of woodworm or decay we would recommend that a full timber survey is carried out to identify the type of woodworm or infestation and a suitable treatment.

When confronted with a piece of infected timber our surveyors will determine the woodworm attack by a sequence of observations and a trained eye, plus a good magnifying lens.


  • The size of the holes.
  • Hardwood or softwood.
  • Big or small holes.
  • Round or oval holes.
  • The texture of the frass present.
  • Is there moisture present?

All treatments for woodworm can be different depending on the conclusion of the survey.

Most Common Woodworm:

  • Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium Punctatum).
  • Wood Boring Weevil (Pentarthrum huttoni).
  • Deathwatch Beetle ( Xestobium rufovillosum).
  • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus)
