We have just moved to Portugal from UK  in a village house  near Argenil in Coimbra district  which has quite a lot of wooden floors ceilings .We have discovered active woodworm in one of the bedrooms which needs treatment but don't want chemical treatment which leaves fumes and affects animals.  In UK  there is a product called boron  does anyone know of local firms which treat woodworm or how to find one ?

You can get borax powder from the agricultural co-operative shops. See https://www.casteloconstruction.info/2012/03/20/borax-woodworm-treatment/

@peterfc Arganil looks amazing. I am traveling from the USA in a few days to finally see Portugal, and Arganil is the first place I will see after resting up in Lisbon for a couple of days.
