Woodworm Treatment available in South West London
A woodworm infestation can be one of the most damaging pest control problems for your property. If not dealt with in a timely manner it can even become a serious danger to the structural integrity of your wooden furniture and even your home. If you suspect that you have a problem with woodworm on your property do not delay in getting in touch with PestControl.co.uk for expert advice and solutions.
How to Spot a Woodworm Infestation
How do you know if you have a current woodworm infestation? One of the most obvious signs of woodworm is of course the tiny holes in the wood. If you notice a hole where you know there wasn't one previously then of course this is an indication that it is a current problem, however if you find them in an old piece of wood then they might be gone already.
In this situation it is best to be safe and call for expert advice as to whether it is a current woodworm infestation and to determine the extent of the damage. The technicians from PestControl.co.uk are experts in the use of borescopes, which can be used to determine how much damage has been done by woodworm.
There are various other indications as to whether the woodworm infestation is ongoing or not. These include:
- Dampness – Woodworm need to get their water from the wood itself so if it is bone dry then it may be that the infestation will have now disappeared, whereas if it is damp at all then it is very probable that it is still an active infestation.
- Frass or Bore Dust – This is direct evidence of a current infestation. When the woodworm burrows through the wood it creates frass, little bits of dust from the wood. If you find little piles of it beneath the wood or around any holes in the wood then you can be sure that it is an active infestation.
- Wood Boring Beetles – Something that not everyone knows is that “woodworm” is actually just the collective name for wood boring beetles while they are in their larval stage. That is actually the state in which they live the majority of their life, which can be several years, but when they are ready to breed they turn in to adult beetles and that is when they burrow out of the wood to find a mate. If you find little wood boring beetles on your property, therefore, that is a definite indication of an active infestation.
Please remember that this is only a guide. Even if you suspect that the infestation may not be active anymore it is best to get expert advice on the matter as an untreated woodworm infestation can cause major problems to the integrity of wood.
The best woodworm treatment will depend on the seriousness of the infestation. If the woodworm has not spread very far or done very much damage then spraying insecticides on the wood may be sufficient.
If a faster technique is required then fumigation may be needed.
If the woodworm have already compromised the integrity of the wood to a great extent then it may be necessary to dispose of it and replace it with fresh wood.
At PestControl.co.uk our technicians are expert at making these determinations and will know the best course of action to take in your situation.
If you suspect you have a woodworm infestation on your property please feel free to get in touch with PestControl.co.uk for expert advice and a free quote.

Bird Proofing available in South West London
If pigeons, seagulls or any other kind of birds are destroying the look of your property get in touch with PestControl.co.uk to have it sorted in a professional and timely manner.
When it comes to dealing with the pest control problem of pigeons and seagulls, they have to be treated in a different way to other sorts of pests such as rats or mice. While an infestation of rats will be eliminated through poisoning or trapping, killing birds is more problematic for practical (and for some people, ethical) reasons.
There are very effective bird control practices available however which the technicians at PestControl.co.uk are experts at carrying out. These comprise a variety of bird deterrents which will keep seagulls, pigeons and other birds away from your property.
The pest control techniques used to keep birds at bay include:
- Bird Netting – These are the nets you will often see on the roofs of buildings, preventing birds from nesting there.
- Bird Wire – If you are concerned that bird netting will ruin the aesthetics of your property then bird wire is an alternative solution, being much less visible but doing the same job.
- Bird Spikes – For areas of heavy infestation bird spikes prevent perching on just about any surface. Please note, although they look dangerous they do not hurt the birds because they will simply refuse to land there.
- Bird Scarers – Emitting bird distress or predator calls, these are particularly effective at keeping birds out of a large area such as a car park or airport.
- Pigeon Deterrents – Every situation is different, but the experts at PestControl.co.uk will be able to recommend the best combination of pigeon netting, pigeon spikes and bird scarers for your circumstances.
- Seagull Deterrents – In many ways seagulls are even worse than pigeons because they can become aggressive as well. There are many ways to solve the pest control problem of seagulls however, from spikes to gull wire.
This is just a selection of some of the most common bird deterrents available from PestControl.co.uk. Please get in touch for the best way of dealing with your specific bird control problem.

Specialist Cleaning available in London
When it comes to dealing with pest control issues, it is not always just a case of getting rid of the pest itself. Sometimes the mess that pests leave behind can be just as unsightly and potentially damaging to your health as the pests themselves. That is why at PestControl.co.uk we offer a comprehensive specialist cleaning service, to quickly and safely return your property to its best condition after a pest control problem.
Although relatively tame in other ways, when it comes to making a mess of your property birds are one of the very worst pests. Whether its pigeons, seagulls, or some other sort of bird, not only is the sight of guano unpleasant but it can be the cause of serious health issues as well.
If you have a large quantity of bird mess on your property then you should not attempt to clean it yourself. Cleaning without taking the proper safety procedures could lead to your inhaling particles of the mess which (quite apart from being a nasty thought in itself) could cause serious health problems. There are three diseases which bird guano are known to often carry: psittacosis, cryptococcosis and histoplasmosis. The latter two are fungal diseases which grow in the droppings, the former is a bacterial disease which can become airborne.
It is not just the guano itself which has to be dealt with carefully, the surrounding area may also have become contaminated and will have to be disinfected. Again, this requires specialist cleaning knowledge and materials to carry out in a safe and effective manner.
For more information on preventing birds from causing a mess on your property in the first place, please see our page on Bird Proofing
. The technicians at PestControl.co.uk are experienced in a wide variety of bird deterrent techniques which will ensure that your property stays free of the menace of pigeons and seagulls.
Of course birds are not the only pests which can make a mess of your property. Some of the major health issues when it comes to a rat infestation, for instance, are caused by their droppings and urine. Our pest control technicians will also be able to help and advise on the specialist cleaning techniques to clean up after a rat infestation, or any other kind of pest contamination.
At PestControl.co.uk we can help you with every aspect of pest control; from prevention to elimination to the clean up afterwards.
