Wood harming insects, such as woodworm, long-horned beetle and fungi can cause a lot of material and financial damage. EWS can offer excellent advice and adequate solutions. We use the latest techniques, such as Heat Treatment.
Due to a European ban on the use of methyl bromide, methyl bromide fumigation for ISPM-15 is no longer possible. The only allowed alternative for ISPM-15 treatment is so-called Heat Treatment.
This hot air treatment heats the harmed wood to at least 54 degrees centigrade right into the core, because of which all stages of insects, such as woodworm and long-horned beetle, are killed. The treatment takes place with special hot air equipment placed outside the house or object to be treated. The heated open air is blown into the space to be treated via hoses or pipes.
