Woodworm

The term ‘woodworm’ covers many types of wood boring beetles, some with wonderful names like Auger, Jewel, Stag and Pinhole Borers. But whatever they are called, you’ll want to say goodbye to them.

Woodworm infests structural and furniture wood based on the type, age, moisture content and availability of wood. All homes or businesses constructed of natural wood are at risk to woodworm infestations.

Here are some helpful facts about woodworm:

  • Adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks in wood. Outdoors this isn’t much of a problem, but inside your property they might infest floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and any other wooden objects.
  • Larvae burrow deep into the wood where they feed – and in the process make a maze of tunnels over several years.

If you don’t have specialist woodworm control the larvae can seriously weaken the wood timbers in a building. If left untreated, this may lead to structural failures.

If you think you might need professional woodworm control, call Ehrlich free at to arrange an appointment.

FACT: The Deathwatch Beetle makes a 'ticking' sound inside wood. Occupants of medieval sick rooms often heard this sound while keeping watch over the dead and dying, hence the name.
