Solving pest problems others can't

Woodworm infestations can wreak havoc in your loft spaces, causing severe damage to your property and valuables. At PGH Pest Prevention, we understand the impact woodworm can have on your home or business and are dedicated to providing effective, comprehensive solutions to tackle this problem. With our expert woodworm treatment services, you can rest assured that your loft space will be pest-free and protected for years to come. 

The Woodworm Problem in Loft Spaces

Woodworm is the common name for larvae of wood-boring beetles, such as the Common Furniture Beetle, Death Watch Beetle, and House Longhorn Beetle. These pests lay their eggs in the cracks and crevices of wood, where the larvae then feed and tunnel through the wood, causing structural damage. 

Loft spaces are particularly susceptible to woodworm infestations due to their damp, dark, and often undisturbed conditions. Infestations can weaken the structural integrity of your property, damage stored items, and negatively impact the overall value of your home or business. 



Is woodworm treatment safe for my family and pets?

Yes, we use industry-approved, eco-friendly treatment methods that are safe for humans and pets. Our technicians will also advise you on any necessary precautions to take during the treatment process.

How long does the treatment process take?

The treatment process can take anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days, depending on the size of your loft space and the extent of the infestation.

Can I prevent future woodworm infestations in my loft space?

To minimise the risk of future infestations, ensure that your loft space is well-ventilated, dry, and regularly inspected for signs of woodworm activity.


PGH Pest Prevention's Approach to Woodworm Treatment

At PGH Pest Prevention, we pride ourselves on our comprehensive woodworm treatment services for loft spaces. Our process includes: 

  • Thorough inspection: Our expert technicians will carry out a detailed inspection of your loft space to assess the extent of the infestation and identify the specific woodworm species present. 
  • Tailored treatment: Based on the inspection findings, we will recommend the most effective treatment plan to eradicate the woodworm infestation in your loft space. This may include chemical treatments, such as insecticides or wood preservatives, or non-chemical solutions like heat treatment or targeted freezing. 
  • Post-treatment monitoring: To ensure long-lasting protection, we will monitor your loft space following treatment to check for any signs of reinfestation.

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!!

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.

Signs of woodworm infestation may include small, round exit holes in the wood, fine dust (frass) around these holes, damaged and weakened timber, or even sightings of adult beetles. If you suspect a woodworm infestation, it is best to contact a professional pest control company like PGH Pest Prevention for an inspection.

Yes, woodworm infestations can spread to other areas of your property if left untreated. It is crucial to address the issue as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your home or business.

Woodworm larvae can infest a wide range of wood types, but they tend to prefer softer woods like pine and spruce. Damp, untreated, or old wood is also more susceptible to infestation.

The length of the woodworm life cycle varies depending on the species but can take anywhere from 1 to 5 years. During this time, the larvae will continue to feed on the wood, causing further damage.

While there are DIY treatment options available, it is strongly recommended that you seek professional help to ensure the infestation is properly treated and eradicated. PGH Pest Prevention has the expertise and equipment necessary to effectively handle woodworm infestations in loft spaces.
