Woodworm is a term used to refer to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle, rather than a particular species. In Britain, the most common of these are the Common Furniture Beetle, the Deathwatch Beetle and the House Longhorn Beetle. All of these beetles invade and then consume wood, only leaving when they have reached full maturity. Signs of woodworm in your property include small round holes in your woodwork, fine, powdery dust around these holes and crumbly edges to boards and joists. You may also notice adult beetles either emerging from these holes or present around your property. If you suspect that your property has woodworm, contact Preservation Treatments. The company provides woodworm control services in Hampshire, London, Middlesex, Surrey, Berkshire and Sussex.
