Woodworm Treatment - RTS Southern, Chichester, West Sussex


Woodboring insects also pose a threat to certain timbers within a building. unlike fungal decay the majority of woodborers do not require water to promote active attack although some are directly associated with fungal decay. However, even the common furniture beetle, Anobium punctatum, has been known to cause structural collapse. Without doubt the most destructuve of the woodboring insects found in the UK is the House Longhorn beetle, Hyiotrupes bajulus, which has caused collapse of roofs.

Whatever the specific insect encountered, it will at least cause degradation of the wood and unsightly spoiling; this will progressively lower the value of the property as the activity becomes more extensive.
