Site Work

Preparation:

All bats are protected under The Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Before treating any structure used by bats, consult English Nature, Scottish National Heritage, The Countryside Council for Wales or The Department of the Environment for Northern Ireland.

Beetle Infestations:

Ensure that all timbers to be treated adequately exposed and cleaned, (vacuum cleaning preferred). Any paint or varnish finishes or any severely damaged sapwood edges of timbers (‘frass’) should be removed prior to treatment where possible.

Remove thermal insulation in roof spaces (or roll up and completely cover) and do not reinstate until timbers are dry. Cover fitted insulation (lagging on pipes) with polythene and cover water storage tanks with heavy grade polythene to be left in-situ after treatment. Isolate electrical circuits in the treatment area during and for 8 hours after treatment and ensure that junction boxes tec. Are adequately protected against the ingress of the fluid. Remove or cover all foodstuff before application as well as fish tanks/bowls. Do not apply to surfaces on which food is prepared or stored.

Where applicable, notify occupants of adjoining properties before treatments commence. Display Safety Notices conspicuously during treatment and leave on site after treatment for at least 48 hours.

Fungal Decay – Wet Rot/Dry Rot

As (a) above plus – locate and rectify the source of dampness. Cut out all structurally unsound timbers and make repairs isolating timbers where possible from damp masonry etc. and ensuring adequate ventilation. For treatments of decayed timbers in-situ see the Wykabor 40.1 Technical Data Sheet.
