Your Pest Threats
Historic buildings and museum artefacts are susceptible to damage from a wide range of pests:
Textile pests – these come in the form of moths and beetles. The larvae cause damage to fabrics and natural furs. These insects can be a major problem for museums.
Artwork, books and other soft organic matter are vulnerable to moths and booklice.
Rodents – they can damage the fabric if a building as well as the contents. They will gnaw hard objects such as wood and will shred textiles and soft materials for nesting. They can also pose a fire hazard as they chew through wires and computer cables.
Wood boring beetles – These can damage wooden furniture and objects as well as the actual timber frames of old buildings.
