Woodworm is a generic term used for the larvae state of a number of different wood-boring beetle species. These can cause serious infestations and fatal structural damage for most forms of wood - proving a huge problem for residential properties across the UK.
Generally, most species of woodworm beetle breed and lay their eggs during the months of April through to September - giving you the opportunity to discover the more subtle, early signs of woodworm during your yearly spring clean! Over time, wood-boring insects can greatly reduce the strength of the timbers they infest. Infestations can often go unnoticed for many weeks; causing damage unknown to you until it's too late. The main damage is mainly caused within the wood , several years before any adults begin to emerge through 'exit' or 'flight' holes on the exterior of the wooden component.
Our woodworm specialists have been specifically trained to identify the different types of woodworm in various types of buildings. We offer UK residents and UK businesses targeted treatments designed to eradicate any size infestation as effectively as possible. Fortunately all of our woodworm treatments carry a 30 year guarantee ensuring that your property will not experience a reoccurrence.
With many species of wood-boring beetle, some with uncanny names like the Deathwatch Beetle or House Longhorn beetle, property owners can easily panic. It is likely you are dealing with the Common Furniture Beetle as this infests most timbers found in properties in the UK. Early identification and gaining a full understanding of the extent of your woodworm issue is key to prevent it from developing into a more serious problem.
1 - Adult beetles lay their eggs in the cracks on wood, potentially infesting floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and other wooden object.
2 - When the Larvae hatch, they burrow themselves further into the wood and feed on it, creating a maze of tunnels over several years. The larvae can seriously weaken the timbers in your property.
