What are woodworms?
Woodworm is a term used to describe the wood-eating larvae of a number of different beetle species. These pests can cause serious damage to timber if left untreated, and an infestation can seriously affect the structural integrity of wood.
Tell-tale signs of woodworm include finding small holes in wood, or discovering wood dust underneath an affected piece of timber. In addition, adult beetles usually emerge between May and October, and can be an indicator of an infestation.
Woodworm should be treated as soon as possible, as an infestation can seriously weaken the structural integrity of load bearing timber. A pest controller will be able to locate any affected timber and apply a pest control solution to treat the infestation.
