Specialist Gatley Woodworm Treatment

A woodworm infestation will immediately set alarm bells ringing for the person who discovers it. Indeed, the visible symptoms of woodworm generally mean that the pests have been in the wood for quite some time; possibly even up to several years. The good news, however, is that they can be dealt with by Young's Pest Control.

  • Eggs
  • Larva
  • Pupa
  • Adult beetles

The signs of a woodworm infestation are varied but will be noticeable. They include:
