What Causes Woodworm?
Woodworm is the term given to wood-boring insects which see eggs laid into small cracks on timber. Woodworm is most typically seen from May to October. It is caused in houses from having moisture within the timber. It can often result in timber framework and floors needing to be replaced if there is an infestation. Woodworm is one of the most common causes of timber damage and can have a long-lasting effect if it is left untreated. Below I have listed common signs of woodworm to make them more identifiable:
- Exit holes in timber
- Presence of frass
- Tunnels within the wood caused by woodworm
- Damaged wood
- Small Insects
Identifying woodworm in their early stages is the most important step in treating woodworm. The majority of people are not even aware that they have a woodworm problem until the damage has already been done and has spread. Unfortunately, the signs of woodworm are only visible once the infestation begins so it is extremely important that you are regularly checking your timber.
