Woodworm is a generic term used for the larvae state of a number of different wood-boring beetle species. Generally, wood-boring beetles lay their eggs during the months of April through to September which can cause serious infestations and fatal structural damage - proving a huge problem for residential properties across the UK.
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.
