Here are some helpful facts about woodworm:
Adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks in wood. Outdoors this isn’t much of a problem, but inside your property they might infest floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and any other wooden objects.
Larvae burrow deep into the wood where they feed – and in the process make a maze of tunnels over several years.
If you don’t have specialist woodworm control the larvae can seriously weaken the wood in a building. If left untreated, this may lead to structural failures. Left untreated, woodworm have the potential to develop into a serious issue, ruining floors and furniture. We strongly recommend that a professional woodworm inspection is carried out if you think you may have identified the signs of a woodworm problem.
