Description

Many fungi and insects can be found attacking wood in buildings in the UK, causing damage and perhaps requiring expensive remedial measures. Some types of attack, though, need no treatment. Correct identification is essential, then, if the right treatment is to be given.

In this third edition, five further types of fungus or decay and a section on termites have been added. The appendices on remedial treatment have been updated.

This book offers the following guidance:

  • Equipment and checklists for inspecting buildings
  • Keys (flow diagrams) for indentifying fungi, moulds and insects causing damage
  • Colour photographs of fungi and moulds, and of wood damaged by fungi and insects
  • Drawing of insects and their larvae
  • Descriptions of fungi, the damage they inflict, and their habitats
  • Descriptions of insects and their larvae, the damage they inflcit, their habitats, and likely misidentifications
  • Methods of treating wood damage by fungi, moulds and insects
