Pest Infestations

 
    Many insects or small animals can invade or infest a piano causing mechanical problems.  Some pests, such as wood boring or felt eating insects can do considerable damage to a piano.  Eradication of most pests is a simple procedure, but some, such as wood beetles, may involve professional extermination, carefully supervised by a competent technician.  Hebert Piano Service has one of the few piano extermination experts in the U.S. and he has published articles in professional journals on piano pest control.  (see Pest Control In Pianos, Pest Control Technology, November 2016)
