About Woodworm

Although there are many varied species of this particular nuisance, the most common type to the UK is the Common Furniture Beetle. In spite of its name, this species has actually been proven more likely to eat into construction timbers than tables and chairs. Again, contrary to their general name, woodworm is in fact beetles. The adult Common Furniture beetle usually grows to between 3 and 5 millimetres and can be identified by a dull, stone-like colour, as well as the unique shape of its thorax, which looks almost like a baggy monk's hood over the insect's head. Signs indicating that you may need Formby woodworm treatment on your furniture include small, rounded holes in timber surfaces, (usually found in a small, concentrated area of the property) and piles of bore dust left behind by the woodworm's burrowing, which feel rough and "gritty" when rubbed between the fingers.

Woodborer, Oligomerus brunneus, extreme close-uptingIn most cases, this species can be dealt with by replacing timber in the affected area with wood treated with a repellent. Other species common to the UK include the House Longhorn Beetle, the Deathwatch Beetle, and the Powderpost Beetle. While some varieties can be treated using the same method for a Common Furniture Beetle, infestations of Longhorn or Deathwatch may require more intense treatment, due to a stronger biological defence against insecticides.
