Protecting Your Property with Romiley Woodworm Treatment

How do I tell if I have a woodworm infestation?

The telltale signs of woodworm are lots of tiny, round holes up and down any wooden structure like furniture, staircases, beams and roof trusses.

Woodborer, Oligomerus brunneus, extreme close-uptingSometimes these holes are old and a Romiley woodworm treatment spray has already been applied, so if you are looking at the wood that has been around for a long time, you might not need to worry. For an active infestation, look for sawdust around the holes or on surfaces directly below. If you’re not sure whether or not you have an active woodworm infestation, then call in an expert and let them check it for you, because if left untreated, a lot of expensive damage can occur.

What happens if I don't treat woodworm?

Woodworm can live inside wooden structures for between two and five years, and the whole time they are eating their way slowly through the timber. If there are a number of these insects present, then the wood could become weak and crumble. Replacing the timber could be expensive and difficult to carry out.

What is woodworm?

Woodworm larvaeWoodworm is actually the larvae stage of a beetle’s life cycle. The beetle lays her eggs in gaps in wood which has a good level of moisture present, so newer wood is often chosen as older wood tends to be drier. As soon as the eggs hatch, the larvae burrow deep into the timber. They chew their way along inside until they are ready to pupate, which they do just below the surface of the structure. As soon as they have changed into a mature beetle, they bite their way out of the wood and exit, leaving a flight hole which can finally be seen as evidence that an infestation is going on. At the beetle stage, the insects are looking to mate and lay eggs, and if they can, they will do this without travelling far. The beetle stage is quite short, there are only a few weeks before they die, so a re-infestation of the same piece of timber is very possible.
