woodworm treatment

Exopest are now operating  a system where we are asking for a £25 fee if you are 30 miles or further away from Redcar (via google maps)

This fee covers diesel and time for us so we can properly inspect your property.

North Yorkshire is a huge county and it simply isnt viable to continue driving  across it just to "have a look" for free whilst continuing to provide the best and most affordable woodworm treatment in North Yorkshire.


Timber  treatment specialists covering all Middlesbrough, Stockton, Redcar and all of Teesside.

There are a number of wood boring insects, or woodworm,  that attack timber in properties in and around the UK.

Exopest Ltd place them into three different categories

Category A

Category B

Category C

Category A wood boring insects usually require insecticidal treatment. Simply put, they are tenacious and they can cause damage, often severely.

For category B wood boring insects treatment may be necessary, if only to treat any associated wood rot. And category C insects do not usually require any insecticidal treatment whatsoever. It may be a case of simply removing the source of dampness and drying out any sound timber.

Up here in the North East the most common Category A insects are:

Common Furniture Beetle

Death Watch Beetle

Ptilinus Beetle

Lyctus Powderpost Beetle

There are other Category A insects that can cause severe structural damage, such as the house longhorn beetle, but as yet Exopest Ltd have yet to find any infestations in the north.

Identification of which Woodworm (the generic term for wood boring beetles) is imperative as treatment can be different, and a mistake in identification could have serious repercussions later or you may not actually need treatment at all.

Geographically, different areas of the North east have different woodworm problems. The older, more  historical towns like Yarm, Whitby, Northallerton and the older parts of Stockton on Tees have a higher ratio of woodworm such as Deathwatch Beetle  than anywhere else by far, but the newer towns Like Ingleby Berwick and newer estates in the Redcar areas are predominantly Common Furniture Beetle.

Generally, the beetle lays her eggs on the wood and once hatched, the larvae, or woodworm, bury into the wood and can stay in there for several years, weakening timber and causing severe structural problems. Damp timber and the problem expediates.

The most common sign that you may have a woodworm issue are the round or oval shaped holes in the wood, anywhere from 1-4 mm across. The holes are sharp and clean looking.

Another sign of woodworm is the bore dust, or frass. This looks like fine sand or sawdust and is caused by the emerging woodworm beetles.

Woodworm can be a major problem if you are buying or selling a property. Exopest Ltd are the areas only Association of Sovereign Approved Contractors who specifically just focus on timber treatment, providing specialist woodworm treatment and timber treatment for both domestic and commercial customers.

Calling in a non-specialist company  to quickly spray a generic "woodworm killer" around your property is the absolute last thing you should do.

Woodworm treatment needs to be done properly, and done properly by professionals, from preparation of the area, to the actual treatment of the timber itself.
