Some of the insects that use wood as a food source can cause serious damage to building timbers and must be controlled. A strategy for remedial treatment of damaged building timbers is outlined in this Digest; it describes the types of treatments available and gives practical advice on their relative advantages and limitations in eradicating infestations by specific wood-boring insects. It complements Digest 307 which identifies the major wood-boring insects in the UK.
