Woodworm removal

Our company is proud to introduce a new, highly innovative and completely environmentally friendly pest control system that allows us to fumigate various environments such as housing, hotels, hospitals, communities, bakeries, pasta, patisseries, etc., using only hot air.

We use sophisticated electric heaters that distribute heat to specific points. This ensures the temperature of the areas under treatment reach between 50° and 60° (approx.) and remains constant for the time necessary to ensure total death of any pest regardless of its lifecycle stage (egg, larva, pupa, or adult). The time required for the various treatments varies from 24 to about 48 hours. The insects are killed due to the denaturing of proteins. Read more about side effects of woodworm infestations.

This is particularly recommended against termites and wood-boring insects, both for furniture and supporting beams. Woodworm attacks either deciduous and conifer woods, regardless of when it was felled, feeding on the lignin and cellulose contained in the cell walls.

Traditional methods of fighting woodworm in wood are based on surface treatment of paints, and inoculation. These treatments, besides being characterised by a high environmental impact, often prove inconclusive because the individuals present deep into the wood are not affected thus voiding the effectiveness of the intervention.

The new heat-based system guarantees the total elimination of insects inside the wood, even when the exit holes aren't visible. Furthermore, the intervention does not leave any residue on treated materials and does not release odours. The heat system is also recommended for eliminating bedbugs (Cimex lectularius).

The bedbug is a hematophagous, heterometabolic, wingless ectoparasite, whose main characteristic is to inflict its guests with long and repeated punctures with its blood-sucking mouthparts.

In communities of larvae and adults, they spend the day in the joints and cracks of beds, walls, furniture, caves, in the seams of mattresses or chairs, and in electrical switches and ducting, where they lay their eggs and come out at night to feed.

The shelters and trails of bedbugs are easily identified by the dark spots of their droppings.

These insects are very sensitive to temperatures: while they can survive even at -15 °C for a few weeks, they succumb quickly to high temperatures.

In fact, a temperature of 45°C is fatal to all stages of the insect's lifecycle, including the eggs. Unlike the older methods of combating bedbugs, the new heat system ensures complete mortality of the pest and, very important for the customer (hotel or home), the immediate availability of the treated areas without instead of having to wait for a period of quarantine required by older systems.

In addition to woodworms and bedbugs, the heat system can also be used in the fight against the mites, against the food-infesting insects in the food chain, with the possibility of also disinfesting the agricultural products themselves. So, with our heat treatment system, we can treat any goods or environment that can withstand such temperatures.

Features and benefits of heat treatments:

Totally environmentally friendly treatment without using toxic or harmful formulations.

Non-toxic system means no risk to people, food and/or goods.

Versatility of usage allows effective action against every kind of pest (insects and/or bacteria).

Applications for the preservation of wood products, and controlling wood-destroying pests, such as woodworm.

Can be used for disinfecting hospitals and outpatient areas.

Can also be applied in inhabited locations, without any authorisation or restriction.

Guaranteed system for use against Cimex lectularius (bed bugs) in hotels, with immediate availability of locations after treatment.

Option for treatment in homes, eliminating the costs of transporting furnishings for off-site treatment.

No odours or residues left in treated areas or materials.
