A woodworm infestation is a problem for many homeowners. It is something that can be harder to identify than other types of infestation, yet is just as dangerous and detrimental to the property.

Woodworm larvaeThe life cycle of the woodworm beetle is that of four stages. From the egg, they progress through larva, to pupa and then to the adult beetle stage of life. The adult beetle finds the cracks and various niches in your woodwork and beams to be the perfect places for laying eggs. It provides a small and well-concealed area for their spawn to grow, feed and thrive. Once hatched, the larva will immediately burrow down into the depths of the wood. When they reach a comfy depth, they will start a long process of eating away at your wood. Come to the adult stage of life, they return to the surface of the wood and lay eggs for the cycle to continue again. In this way, it is important that a Runcorn woodworm treatment spray is used by a professional team to stop the cycle, preferably early on so as to minimise the damage they can do.

One of the more noticeable signs of a woodworm infestation is the observation of small holes in woodwork. These small holes will only be 1.5-2 millimetres in size. However, the quantity of them should make it easier to spot, and there is likely to be left behind some quantity of bore dust that has a feeling of grit to it.

If it’s not floorboards or beams, then Runcorn woodworm treatment to your furniture is less likely to pose much of a problem beyond inconvenience. However, if the infestation is found in support beams then depending on the stage they’ve been caught at, you may have a structurally weakened beam that should be replaced promptly. Crumbling wood, often around corners and edges of surfaces, is a sign that the problem has been going on for some time.
