What is woodworm?

Woodworm is the general name given to insects that attack timbers. There are a variety of different insects, each preferring a different type and condition of wood and each able to cause varying levels of damage. Woodworm usually enters your property by flying in, or from other timber that has already been infested. Once Woodworm has gained access it can cause structural damage and irreversible loss.

Wood can be infected with eggs or larvae without it being noticeable, and you may not discover a woodworm infestation for several years. They all invade your home and consume wood and then leave when they have reached maturity to find a partner, mate, and then lay eggs onto timber to start the whole process off again that is woodworm treatments company Wokingham.

How do you know if you have a current 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.

Woodworm infestation in timber: If the timber has already reached the point where the woodworm have caused it to become crumbly or make a cracking noise when you lift it up then we would suggest that it is beyond the point of repair and the best course of action would be to dispose of the furniture in a tip where the beetles wouldn’t have the chance to afflict other parts of your home.

Woodworm treatment for your property: We use many different treatments for woodworm infestation. Certain species respond to light applications of wood preservative whilst larger more penetrative beetles require the application of thicker deep treatment paste and injection.
