What is woodworm?

Woodworm is the name given the larval stage of wood boring beetles. These creatures burrow into wood, leaving the characteristic holes in your timber. If you’ve noticed these holes, small piles of dust, or find that your timber is incredibly brittle, it could be signs of woodworm damage.


If left unchecked these small insects can cause significant structural damage to your timber, so it’s important to act on any suspicions you have. At Probuild Contracts Preservation we offer comprehensive woodworm treatments, designed to stop any infestation in its tracks, and help to prevent these critters coming back.


Based in Edinburgh, we offer a complete woodworm solution to customers throughout the city and beyond, and can also be trusted to help with wet and dry rot.

It’s not always obvious if woodworm is the culprit, so it pays to choose an experienced team to assess your property. We have been in the industry for more than 30 years, and can identify if there are signs of woodworm, and if it is an active issue (or a previously resolved problem).


By choosing Probuild Contracts Preservation, you can have complete confidence that any woodworm issues will be correctly identified and treated.
