Timber Infestation Specialist - Treatments & Inspection in Stockport and Cheshire

Timber or Beetle infestation, occurs in soft woods and European hard woods, especially birch, used in plywood. The insect is frequently found in old furniture or unfinished surfaces such as, drawers, backs of cupboards, under tables etc. It is also found around loft accesses and under stairs and areas affected by damp and moisture content, which has a influence on larva development. The Common Furniture beetle (Anobium Punctatum) is probably the most common domestic pest present in this country at this time.


The common furniture beetle is between 3-5mm long, it is dark brown with lines of pits (punctuations) along wing covers. Flight season is late March to early September. It is attracted to white surfaces. The Larva of the common furniture beetle is up to 6mm long, it is curved and a pale cream colour. It will remain at this stage for between 3-5 years. The emergence holes and tunnels are 11/2-2mm in diameter. They are of round orientation but mainly along the grain. The fraze or bore dust is gritty to feel between the fingers and pale cream coloured, containing lemon shaped faecal pellets.


Treated with a chemical spray at low pressure or dipping, you may also use a high density emulsified paste. Any badly damaged sections or structurally unsafe layers of timber must be de-frazed or removed prior to treatment. Surfaces must be clean and free of dust and debris.
