Woodworm Damage

Woodworm hatch from the eggs of a few beetle species and they are basically the larval stage of these insects. The first instinct of woodworm is to bore inside the wooden object on which the eggs were laid. Their entire life is spent feeding on the starch in the timber, and they will leave a small tunnel behind as they do this. Woodworm can have a lifespan of up to 10 years before they reach maturity and if enough of them attack a piece of timber, it can cause extensive damage. Wooden objects can be weakened to the point of destruction and work to repair this can be costly. It is far better to get the Heswall woodworm treatment that furniture and building timbers require to kill off the pest quickly. This should ensure that only limited damage occurs.

Spotting the Pest

Because they live their life out of sight, it is not always that easy to spot a woodworm infestation in the beginning. There are a few things to look out for though that can signal that damage is being done.

  • Woodworm larvaeSurface holes: The adult beetles emerging from the pupa of woodworm will bore their way out of the timber. This leaves a small, circular exit hole in the surface and signs of these on an object can signify that more woodworm is inside.
  • Bore Dust: The fine dust created by the adult beetles freeing themselves will be evident on the floor below an object with a woodworm infestation.
  • Dead Adults: The adult beetles live a short life in which they will mate to produce the next generation. They generally lay their eggs on already infested objects, which will worsen the problem if not treated. Finding dead beetles around wooden objects can be a sign of a woodworm problem.
