Woodworm

Woodworms aren't very widespread in the United Kingdom, but an infestation can be very destructive. Woodworm refers to the larvae stage of several unique species of beetle, the most typical of which is the Common Furniture Beetle. These pest insects lay their eggs within damp or rotten wood. When these eggs hatch, small larvae begin to consume the wood around them, which is what causes the holes in wood. The exit holes are created as the larvae transforms into an adult beetle which then leaves the wood. The beetles are capable of flying and will typically leave the area to breed. However, they may return to lay eggs. In serious conditions, these insects may damage structural elements of a building which can have serious consequences.

Signs of a woodworm infestation include cracking noises coming from wood in your house or furniture, as well as the visual indicators which are the exit holes found in wood and wood dust generally observed beneath infested wood. Woodworm infestations should be controlled by expert pest control professionals. It may also be necessary to have a structural survey carried out as woodworms are generally a sign of damp. Even if the woodworms have not caused serious damage themselves, the damp or rotten wood that they live in might cause a structural problem in the building.

Woodworm treatment is reasonably straightforward once the affected area has been properly located. The wood can be covered with a liquid or lacquer that may prevent any larvae inside from exiting and suffocate them, or for more extensive infestations fumigation is often used to ensure that the pests are effectively controlled.
