Woodworm is a generic term used for the larvae state of a number of different wood-boring beetle species.

Woodworms - What are you Dealing With?

So you have found some small holes in your timber with dust below them, but what has caused this and could it be a perilous problem? Is there a possible chance of a woodworm infestation in our home?  A question thousands of householders ask each year.

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.

Woodworm facts:

  • 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.
