The key to stopping woodworm before they cause irreparable harm to your property is identifying them early. You may not realise that you have a woodworm problem until the resulting damage becomes visible. If left untreated woodworm can seriously weaken timber - this may lead to structural failure in your property.
If you have spotted the signs of woodworm listed on this page we would recommend booking a survey with Rentokil Property Care. Our qualified and experienced surveyors have years of experience when it comes to delivering professional woodworm treatment
Below we have explained the signs that could indicate that you have a woodworm problem.
Tunnels in wood, also known as galleries are the result of woodworm boring through the infected timber, these are often hard to see.
Bore dust, also known as frass, is caused by emerging adult woodworm beetles. This is usually visible below the infested timber.
Crumbling wood is caused by multiple woodworm exit holes and can be found around corners or edges of roof joists or floorboards.
Adult beetles emerge from timbers between May and October.
Woodworm larvae are usually a creamy-white colour and curved in shape, however, these are rarely seen.
Any of these signs could mean you have a woodworm infestation and a thorough inspection of your property should be carried out. Woodworm treatments by our trained technicians carry a 30 year guarantee so you can be sure all work conducted by us, will keep you and your property safe.
