Woodworm Treatment

Woodworm Cycle

 

Woodworm is caused by four types of woodworm beetles resident in the UK. It is a common misconception that woodworm only affects old properties; in fact it can cause damage to newly constructed buildings as well as old.

In the UK there are 4 common types of woodworm that often cause property owners to require woodworm treatment:

Common Furniture Beetle

Death Watch Beetle

House Longhorn Beetle

Powderpost Beetle

Without treatment, woodworm can cause significant damage to the structure of a property and depending on the level of woodworm infestation; it can result in a property becoming structurally unsound.

How to spot if you need Woodworm Treatment:


Tell tale signs of woodworm include:

Small round holes in your woodwork, similar to the holes in a dart board.

Fine, powdery dust around these holes (this is known as frass).

Crumbly edges to boards and joists.

Adult beetles emerging from the holes or present around the house.

Even if you can't see any holes, you might also find frass escaping from the back or underside of old furniture. Again this suggests active woodworm.
