West Midlands Total Preservation is fully experienced in all aspects of Wood Boring Insects.
Woodworm is the generic term used to commonly describe the larvae stage of wood boring beetles that are seen emerging between April to October. As seasonal pests, woodworm can be found in any house where there is exposed timber.
With timber accounting for up to 70% of the fabric of a house, woodworm can be a very common problem with woodworm treatments common within the summer months. In Scotland, the most typical woodworm beetle pest is the ‘Common Furniture Beetle’ which can get into any home through open doors, windows, fresh air vents and gaps in the eves.
Click on below for more details:
- Small round holes in your woodwork, similar to the holes in a dart board.
- Fine, powdery dust around these holes (this is known as frass).
- Crumbly edges to boards and joists.
- Adult beetles emerging from the holes or present around the house.
- Even if you can’t see any holes, you might also find frass escaping from the back or underside of old furniture. Again this suggests active woodworm. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
