WOODWORM CAN CAUSE SERIOUS STRUCTURAL DAMAGE TO A BUILDING
Woodworms are not actually a type of worm at all, they are the larval form of several species of beetle. They eat wood as they mature, before pupating just under the surface of the wood. Once they have finished pupating, the adult beetle will gnaw an exit hole through the wood. This destruction of timber may seem minor, but when you consider the speed with which insects reproduce, a lot of small holes can quickly become a big problem!
If you’ve discovered a woodworm problem in your property, then it’s time to call us in as these pests will degrade the timbers and eventually this will lead to structural damage. We will undertake a thorough survey to ascertain the extent of the problem, and to recommend the most appropriate way to treat it.
