Woodworm Basics

The lifecycle of woodworm has four main stages. It starts with eggs being laid in the cracks and crevices of wooden objects and this can include floorboards, structural beams, and furniture in a home. A larva hatches from the egg and this is the stage when most damage is caused. The larva will eat their way through wooden objects and this creates a network of small tunnels. A woodworm infestation can result in many tunnels that weaken and damage wood to the point of collapse. The third stage of the lifecycle is the larva pupating and this leads to the final stage of the adult beetle. The pupa is generally formed close to the surface and this allows the beetle to more easily chew its way out. Adults will then mate and lay eggs so the lifecycle can start over again unless an Ashton-Under-Lyne woodworm removal treatment spray is used to disrupt it and kill the insects.

Woodworm Signs

There are a few tell-tale signs that show evidence of a woodworm infestation. The exit holes where the adults chew their way out can start to become obvious and the dust created when they do this will accumulate below an infested object. Other things to look out for are dead beetles, crumbling wood, and other damage to wooden objects. If a few of these signs become obvious then it is time to invest in an Ashton-Under-Lyne woodworm treatment spray.
