What is Woodworm?

7th August 2019

Contrary to its name, woodworm is in fact a generic term that refers to various types of woodboring beetle and larvae commonly found throughout the UK. These little pests can attack almost any type of timber, from furniture and floorboards to joists and rafters, and can cause serious structural damage if left untreated. Fortunately, woodworm is fairly easy to spot as the beetles leave distinctive exit holes and a powdery dust on the wood’s surface.
