Woodworm and its infestation in furniture: Woodworm refers to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle, rather than one particular species. The most common species found is the Common Furniture Beetle. The initial attack is made when an adult beetle lays eggs in small cracks on the timber surface. The resulting larvae that hatch will bore into the wood in search of cellulose to feed on. The larva will create a chamber within the wood in which an adult beetle will emerge after metamorphosis. The new adult will continue to tunnel through the wood in an attempt to exit wood, creating a small visible flight hole. The adult will then seek to mate and start the whole process once more. The tunnels and chambers that have been created in this process will lead to decay and weakening of the timbers.

Some types of woodworm:

Common furniture beetle (Anobium Punctatum): this is the most common of all insect that attack the seasoned timber. Adult common furniture beetle can reach between 3mm to 5mm long timber. They can be found on and around damaged timber.

Deathwatch Beetle (Xestobium  Rufobillosum): Deathwatch beetle can reach between 6mm and 9mm long timber. They can be found on or beneath the timber.

Wood Boring Weevil (Euophryum Confine): they live in softwood or hardwood in damp condition. Adult Wood Boring Weevil can reach between 3mm to 5mm long timber.

What are the signs that help you to spot a woodworm infestation?

One of the most obvious signs of woodworm is of course the tiny holes in the wood.  If you notice a hole where you know there wasn’t one previously then of course this is an indication that it is a current problem, however if you find them in an old piece of wood then they might be gone already.

The other signs include:

  • Wood Boring Beetles – Something that not everyone knows is that “woodworm” is actually just the collective name for wood boring beetles while they are in their larval stage.  That is actually the state in which they live the majority of their life, which can be several years, but when they are ready to breed they turn in to adult beetles and that is when they burrow out of the wood to find a mate.  If you find little wood boring beetles on your property, therefore, that is a definite indication of an active infestation.
  • Dampness – Woodworm need to get their water from the wood itself so if it is bone dry then it may be that the infestation will have now disappeared, whereas if it is damp at all then it is very probable that it is still an active infestation.

Treatments required for woodworm:
If the woodworm have already compromised the integrity of the wood to a great extent then it may be necessary to dispose of it and replace it with fresh wood. At the Pest Company our technicians are expert at making these determinations and will know the best course of action to take in your situation.
