Protecting Our Heritage from Pests

Antiquities and historic buildings are vulnerable to a wide range of pest problems:

  • Artwork, books, textiles and other soft organic matter are vulnerable to moths and textile beetles
  • Rodents will gnaw wood and other hard objects and will shred textiles and soft materials for nesting
  • Furniture and other wooden objects are at risk from wood boring beetles
  • Wooden church lecterns and pews are also very susceptible to wood damage and other timber decay problems.

Rentokil Pest Control offers the expertise to protect and conserve antiquities from pest problems while using products and techniques that ensure minimal risk of damage through contact.
