Solving pest problems others can't

At PGH Pest Prevention, we understand the inconvenience and damage caused by woodworm infestations in cellars. Our expert team is committed to providing the best possible service to protect your property from these troublesome pests. This webpage will outline the problems caused by woodworm, our approach to resolving the issue, costs of our services, and common questions customers have. We will also compare our services to other providers in the market, and provide answers to frequently asked questions. 

Woodworm Problems in Cellars

Woodworm infestations can cause severe damage to the structural integrity of your property. As these pests burrow into wooden structures, they weaken the timber, eventually leading to costly repairs. In cellars, woodworm can compromise the stability of floor joists, beams, and even the foundation of your home or business. Additionally, woodworm infestations can lead to unpleasant odours and allergen issues. 



How long does the woodworm treatment take?

The duration of the treatment depends on the size of the infestation and the chosen treatment method. Most treatments can be completed within one day, while larger infestations or fumigation processes may take longer.

Is the treatment harmful to humans or pets?

Our technicians use industry-approved chemicals and methods that are safe for humans and pets. We will provide you with all necessary safety information before commencing the treatment.

How can I prevent future woodworm infestations in my cellar? 

We recommend regular inspections and maintenance of your cellar to identify and address any potential issues early. Ensuring proper ventilation and moisture control can also help to prevent woodworm infestations.

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.

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.

Signs of woodworm infestation include small, round holes in wooden structures, crumbling or weakened timber, and the presence of adult beetles or larvae. If you suspect a woodworm infestation, it’s best to call in a professional to assess the situation. 

Woodworm can infest various types of wood, but they are more commonly found in softwoods such as pine, spruce, and fir. They can also infest hardwoods like oak, but it is less common. 

While there are some DIY treatments available, we strongly recommend contacting a professional pest control company like PGH Pest Prevention. DIY treatments may not be as effective, and improper use of chemicals can pose risks to your health and safety.

The rate of damage caused by woodworm can vary depending on the species, the type of wood, and the environmental conditions. In some cases, significant damage can occur within a few years, while in others, it may take a decade or more. Early detection and treatment are crucial to minimise damage.
