However, the habits of these beetles are not confined to the outside; in homes, commercial properties and, in fact, any building that uses timber as part of its structure or furnishings, there is always the potential that they can become infested with beetle larvae.

Does your property require treatment for woodworm removal?

An affected piece of timber will show signs of infestation on its surface in the form of small, spherical holes. These are where the beetle larvae have either bored into the wood or exited. The exit holes will appear slightly larger and often be surrounded by fine, grainy dust.

Because of the way larvae chew their way through the wood, the structural integrity of any affected pieces could potentially become compromised, which for supporting structures and floorboards means immediate safety concerns. In the case of floorboards, an obvious sign of this would be if part of a floorboard gave way.

The problems a woodworm infestation can cause homeowners

The seriousness of a case of woodworm is dependant on a number of factors such as the location of the problem, the extent of it and the species of beetle found to be causing the issue.

Regarding the species, the most populous and least serious is the Common Furniture Beetle, which is down to the fact that the larvae of these species boreholes that are smaller than other types. However, they can still infest structural features such as flooring, support beams and joinery, not just furniture that would require Chadderton woodworm treatment furniture spray.
