Pest control woodworm

Postby Sagitar » Sun Jun 14, 2015 9:40 am

I have an outbreak of woodworm in my garage. I have tried painting the affected objects with Rentokil but have failed to contain the problem.

Does anyone know of a local firm that deals with such things?

A recommendation based upon experience would be most welcome.

Thanks.

It might be worth fog bombing your garage:

However the grubs can last up to 5 years in the timbers, munching away! I'd repeat the fogging for a year or two.

They need moisture so keeping you garage dry will help
