Solving pest problems others can't

Dealing with a woodworm infestation in your roofing can be a highly distressing and disruptive issue for homeowners and businesses alike. At PGH Pest Prevention, we understand the importance of maintaining a safe and pest-free environment, which is why we offer comprehensive roofing repairs and woodworm prevention services across the UK. 

Woodworm Problems and Service Issues Caused to Customers

Woodworm infestations can lead to a host of problems for property owners, including: 

  • Structural damage: As woodworm larvae bore through wooden beams, they weaken the structure of your roof, potentially resulting in costly repairs or even roof collapse. 
  • Decreased property value: A woodworm infestation can significantly decrease the value of your property, making it difficult to sell or lease. 
  • Health risks: Woodworm larvae produce allergens and irritants, which can cause respiratory issues, skin irritation, and other health problems for occupants. 
  • Unsightly damage: The presence of woodworm can cause visible damage to your property’s aesthetics, which can be off-putting for guests or customers. 



How do I know if I have a woodworm infestation?

Signs of woodworm infestation include small round holes in wooden surfaces, crumbling wood, and the presence of adult beetles, larvae, or frass (fine powdery wood dust). If you suspect a woodworm issue, it’s best to call in a professional to assess the situation. 

How do I know if I have a woodworm infestation?

The duration of treatment depends on the severity of the infestation and the chosen treatment method. Typically, treatments can take anywhere from a few hours to several days, with additional time required for preventive measures. 

Is woodworm treatment harmful to humans or pets? 

While some woodworm treatments involve the use of chemicals, our technicians follow strict safety protocols to minimise risks to humans and pets. We’ll inform you of any necessary precautions to take during the treatment process.


Our Approach to Overcoming Woodworm Issues and Cost of Service

At PGH Pest Prevention, we tackle woodworm issues with a three-step approach: 

Step 1: Inspection and Assessment – Our team of experienced technicians conduct a thorough inspection of your property to identify the extent of the infestation and determine the most appropriate treatment. 

Step 2: Treatment – Depending on the type and severity of the infestation, our experts will employ a range of techniques to eradicate the woodworm, including chemical treatments, fumigation, or heat treatment. 

Step 3: Prevention – After the infestation has been treated, we provide advice and implement preventive measures to keep woodworm from returning, including sealing and treating vulnerable areas.

Exceptional customer service and follow up. Very happy with this company and the quality of their work. So much greater than the previous company I initially used. Branden and Ryan were a pleasure to engage with and their knowledge of the subject at hand was very reassuring.

Cannot recommend these guys enough! We were in desperate need of quick help with a rodent issue we were having. They were so efficient, clean and responded quickly. Communication was great, and nothing was too much of a bother. They even came back 3 weeks after the job had been completed to make sure we were happy and to check the areas. The whole team is faultless, thanks guys!!
Wish I had used this company first!

PGH have been brilliant. I had an issue with another pest company and wish I had used this company first! They've listened, are interested in finding a solution and couldn't have been more professional or kinder. They did a very thorough survey and developed an appropriate treatment plan and have been available to offer advice when I've called. I really would highly recommend them.
Highly recommend for peace of mind and excellence

Peter surveyed the problem of birds in my roof space, and I received a detailed quote which I accepted. The work, which seemed complicated to me, was carried out as described and humanely. I am very satisfied as this problem has been causing me a lot of stress for a long time, and now it is resolved. 100% recommended.

DIY treatments may provide temporary relief, but they may not be as effective as professional solutions. To ensure a thorough and long-lasting resolution, it’s best to hire a professional pest control company like PGH Pest Prevention.

To prevent future woodworm infestations, you can take several steps, such as keeping your property well-ventilated, sealing and treating exposed wooden surfaces, and conducting regular inspections for signs of infestation.

Depending on the treatment method, you may need to vacate your property for a short period. Our technicians will inform you of any necessary precautions and provide a clear timeline for treatment. 

At PGH Pest Prevention, we strive to use eco-friendly products and methods whenever possible. We adhere to strict environmental guidelines and regulations, ensuring that our treatments are safe for both people and the environment.

We understand the urgency of addressing woodworm infestations and aim to schedule an inspection as soon as possible. In most cases, we can begin treatment within a few days of the initial assessment.
