Most people have no experience of woodworm until they discover small holes or fine dust in their roof spaces, floors or furniture, this is usually enough evidence to suggest that there is some form of woodworm infestation in their premises, but this must be confirmed by a trained professional. Woodworm is the common name for a number of wood boring insects; there are four species, common furniture beetle, wood boring weevil, death watch beetle and longhorn beetle.

These insects lay their eggs on or in timber, and when the larvae emerge they commence feeding on the timber using cellulose in the timber as a source of nutrition. Over time the tunnels that the larvae create weaken the timber and this may lead to a deterioration of the roof structure, floor or furniture. The holes and dusts are made by adults emerging from the timber between May and September.
If a woodworm infestation is confirmed you must consider a professional treatment, otherwise the structure of roof, floor or furniture will continue to deteriorate. Should you consider selling your property potential buyers may be put off unless they are shown evidence of a certified and guaranteed treatment.
