"Got a shabby chic bench that had a lot of woodworm holes. Not taking a chance so I liberally doused it in Sikagard Woodworm Killer. Price was less than a quarter for the well known brand - from another well known DIY store. Happy with this product because it does not smell, dries reasonably quickly, leaves no residue and soaks into the wood very well. I also now have plenty spare as this was a huge 5L tin. Recommended."

Review 3 for Sika Sikagard Woodworm Killer Clear 5Ltr
"When I first received the SIKAGUARD WOODWORM KILLER 5L, and opened it, there was hardly any smell and my wife and I had doubts whether it would be strong enough to kill the woodworm in our front room that had a large bay window. There were numerous small woodworm beetles crawling all over our carpet and the more that we killed, a fresh batch of the woodworm beetles would soon appear. We had woodworm about 30 years ago and called in a specialist firm to treat our entire ground floor. Unfortunately, we had to vacate the house for a few days because of the very strong fumes and smell. The effects of that treatment had worn out and the woodworms were back. and the only way to find out whether the SIKAGUARD WOODWORM KILLER would work, I got a clear plastic jar and pierced holes around the top for air and caught a large number of the Woodworm Beetles and put them into the plastic jar - They began crawling all over the sides of the jar. I then poured a few drops of the SIKAGUARD WOODWORM KILLER into the jar and shook the plastic jar so as to spread the said Woodworm Killer on the bottom. The Woodworm Beetles were all crawling on the sides of the plastic jar, so I shook the jar vigorously so as to drop the Woodworm Beetles to the bottom. I did not want to drown the Woodworm Beetles and therefore the spread of the Woodworm Killer just about wet the bottom, yet it was powerful enough to kill the Woodworm Beetles within a few seconds. I then lifted one length of the floor board and with a garden sprayer, I sprayed the Sikaguard Woodworm Killer all over under the floorboards. I sprayed again a second time before the first spray had dried up. Over the next, two to three days, I found the odd one or two Woodworm Beetle coming out from under the sofas - They may have been the ones that got into the sofas before I sprayed under the floor boards. Since then not a single Woodworm Beetle has appeared anywhere in the whole house. Most probably only the front room with the large bay window was infested with the Woodworms. Furthermore, my wife and I did not have to vacate the house as there was no strong smell or fumes as did the previous treatment several years ago. Frankly, I think I should also treat the other rooms on the ground floor but as there are no signs of infection, my wife is reluctant for me to lift the floor board of any other room.

Review 5 for Sika Sikagard Woodworm Killer Clear 5Ltr
"I used 3 x 5 ltr tins of the cuprinol woodworm treatment, and after running out I decided to give this product a go due to the price different. I can't comment on the products performance however fumes wise it had no smell at all. The cuprinol has a reasonably strong smell and wood take a while to disperse. I believe the cuprinol is solvent based tho compared to this product being water based. As long as it does what it says on the side of the tin I prefer this to the more expensive cuprinol."

"as advertised this product is low odour and easy to use, I used a standard garden sprayer on a coarse spray and it seemed to soak in well with no noticeable smell. I can't smell much but the other half didn't notice anything and she can smell a gas leak at 100 metres. come back in 20 years to see if it works."
