PROTECT YOURSELF OR GET RID OF WOOD BUGS

Protection contre les insectes et vers de bois

Wood is omnipresent in our homes, whether in our partitions, our frames, or our furniture. And we are unfortunately not the only ones who use it: wood is the food of many insect larvae which can lodge and feed themselves there, causing a lot of damage, damaging the structure of the wood and compromising its resistance.

Among the wood-boring insects, the most common are the Anobiidae or beetles(encountered in softwood and sapwood), Capricorn (resinous) and Lyctus (resinous oak). Most recent structures are preventively impregnated.

WHERE

  • Everywhere ! Untreated wood, wherever it may be, can be colonized by wood-boring insects Anobiidae, Vrillettes, Capricorn, Lyctus). The insects particularly like the softwood and sapwood (soft part) of oak, such as beams, the floors of lofts, etc.
  • But it is the old frameworks that are most exposed, such as exposed beams, under roofing, cladding, etc.
  • In the case of more recent woodwork, they are often “factory” protected by soaking in an impregnation bath. Softwood is particularly vulnerable.

SYMPTOMS

  • Appearance of holes in the wood.
  • Visible presence of insects on the surface of the wood.
  • Small piles of sawdust either on the wood or on the ground under the affected beams.

WHY DO IT?

– Protect wood from damage. A structure infested with capricorn can lose its stability and resistance. In old houses, worm-eaten floors sometimes present a real danger of collapse for the occupants.

– Avoid the proliferation of the colony and the infestation of other woodwork in the vicinity (furniture, woodwork, etc.)

– Our treatment is guaranteed for 10 years.

– The fungicides and insecticides used are approved by the Ministry of Public Health.

TREATMENT STEPS

  • Preparation of the site:
    • Diagnosis of the condition of the wood and the extent of the infestation;
    • Dismantling and removal of irreparable beams and rafters damaged by woodworm;
    • Dusting.
  • Deep injection treatment:
    • Drilling every 20 to 30 cm to a depth equal to 2/3 of the thickness of the beams, boards and rafters to be treated;
    • Injection under pressure of the curative product (Basilit Curattack).
  • Surface treatment by coating with the curative product (Basilit Curattack)
