In addition to this, you need to know more about it.


How to recognize the signs of an infested frame?

  • Galleries on the surface of the wood

  • Sawdust under the beam

  • Small visible holes

  • Noises in the frame (we can sometimes hear the noise of wood-boring insects working)

Know that if you notice one of these 4 signs on one of your beams or furniture, it is time to bring in a professional to carry out a survey as quickly as possible.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

How is the treatment carried out?

  • Logging / Brushing : stripping of the still healthy wood using a stripper or an ax then brushing in order to remove the sawdust.

  • Drilling : 2/3 of the beam in order to insert in staggered rows every 35cm of the wood injectors

  • Injection : at very high pressure in the wood injectors so that the insecticide and fungicide solution reaches the heart of the wood and deeply treats the beam

  • Double spraying : at low pressure it allows a slow impregnation on the surface of the insecticide and / or fungicide solution in order to improve the persistence and therefore avoid any rapid return of xylophagous insects

  • Galeries à la surface du bois

  • Sciure sous la poutre

  • Petits trous apparents 

  • Bruits dans la charpente (on peut parfois entendre le bruit des insectes xylophages qui travaillent)


Sachez que si vous remarquez un de ces 4 signes sur une de vos poutres ou meubles, il est temps de faire intervenir un professionnel afin d'effectuer un sondage le plus rapidement possible.

Comment s'effectue le traitement ?

  • Bûchage / Brossage : mise à nu du bois encore sain à l’aide d’un décapeur ou d'une hache puis brossage afin d’éliminer la sciure.

  • Perçage : au 2/3 de la poutre afin d’insérer en quinconce tous les 35cm des injecteurs bois

  • Injection : à très haute pression dans les injecteurs à bois afin que la solution insecticide, fongicide atteigne le cœur du bois et traite en profondeur la poutre

  • Double pulvérisation : à basse pression elle permet une imprégnation lente et en surface de la solution insecticide et/ou fongicide afin d'améliorer la rémanence et donc éviter tout retour rapide d’insectes xylophages

Pourquoi et quand protéger sa charpente contre les insectes xylophages ?

Why and when should you protect your frame against wood-boring insects?

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Wood is a natural, living material known for its longevity when properly cared for. This one undergoes various and varied attacks of various parasites (fungi, insects, larvae ...)

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

The most common but also the most harmful, in the region of Var and the Alpes Maritimes, are xylophagous insects, commonly known as Wood-eating Capricorns. They are capable of completely destroying a frame.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

You should know that new constructions are treated and have a 10-year guarantee against all xylophagous insects.

It is therefore important at the end of these 10 years to carry out regular checks and preventive treatments in order to avoid an infestation.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Tiger recommends polling every 2 years to prevent infestation.
