Professional Ashton-in-Makerfield Woodworm Treatment

Woodworm is a general word that covers the different kinds of wood-eating beetles. The Common Furniture Beetle is the commonest woodworm species in the UK. An adult Common Furniture beetle is about 3 to 5mm in length. Powderpost beetles, House Longhorn beetles, and Deathwatch beetles are also found in the UK.

Where woodworm live
Adult woodworm lay eggs in the cracks found in timber, floorboards, furniture, and other wooden objects. When the larva is hatched, it burrows through timber and cannot be easily seen by the property owner. The larva feeds on the wood and continues tunneling for a number of years. As it continues to mature, it continues to eat its way to the wood surface.
