Woodworm Treatment & Control Specialists

Woodworm refers to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle. In the UK, the most common species found are the Common Furniture Beetle, Deathwatch Beetle, House Longhorn Beetle and Powderpost Beetle. We’ve all heard of the horrors of woodworm and left unchecked they really do cause a great deal of damage.

The main reason they are so destructive, is that the adult beetles lay their eggs hidden in the cracks of wood to keep the eggs safe as well as to provide a food source for the larvae to feed on when the hatch.

If you suspect you have woodworm, you’ll need expert help promptly from qualified and experienced woodworm specialists like TrustGuard Ltd.

How do you know if you have woodworm in your property?

It is a common misconception that woodworm only affects old properties, in fact it can cause damage to newly constructed buildings. Some of the tell-tale signs of woodworm include:

  • Bore-dust – as the beetles emerge from the wood it creates a mixture of wood dust and beetle droppings called Frass which you can spot below infested timber and furniture
  • Wood tunnels – the burrowing beetles leave a network of tunnels or ‘galleries’ as they’re known which are difficult to spot
  • Recent exit holes – a freshly bored woodworm hole will be roughly 2mm in size and round or oval in shape with a cleaner and crisper appearance than older holes
  • Crumbling wood – wooden corners on areas such as roof joists or floorboards have corners or edges which are rounded or breaking away
  • Damaged or weak floorboards – you’ll start to notice a difference to the strength of floorboards as they become weaker underfoot, or in more extreme cases, parts of furniture may break through the wood
  • Woodworm larvae – there are many varieties of woodworm but their larvae are most often creamy-white in colour
  • Woodworm eggs – these are tricky to spot with the naked eye and vary in size depending on which type of beetle it is
  • Adult woodworm beetles – between May and October, also known as woodworm season, you may notice the adult beetles emerging from the wood or timber
  • Dead woodworm beetles – woodworm only live for a few days if male and a couple of weeks if female, so you may find dead beetles on windowsills or close to infested timber
