Timber Treatment & Infestation in Cambridge

How we can help with Timber Treatment...


Timber infestations normally start from insects such as beetles feeding on the timber. You will often find slightly larger holes on the timber surface due the adult beetle emerging from the timber in order to mate.

There are four main types of beetle, which may be identified, most easily by the size of flight holes they leave, but in general they have the same effect - destruction of timber.

  • The Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum) causes holes of up to 2mm diameter
  • The Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum) forms round holes up to 3mm in diameter
  • House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus) emerges from an opening up to 6mm wide and 10mm long
  • The Wood-Boring weevils (Euophryum confine and Pentarthrum huttoni) have irregularly shaped holes measuring 1mm in width
