How to Tell If You Have a Woodworm Problem?

Woodworm is the larvae of a wood-boring beetle. The larvae are laid by the beetles, and these hatch into tiny worm-like larvae. The “worms” bore into wooden objects and create tunnels as they feed and grow.

Here are some of the most common signs of a woodworm infestation.

  1. Small round holes in the wood: These are the exit holes where adult beetles emerge from the wood after they have completed their lifecycle.
  2. Fine sawdust or wood powder: If you see small piles of sawdust or debris on the surface or beside the wood, it may be indicative of a woodworm infestation.
  3. Damaged wood: Infested wood may show signs of damage, be weakened, or even be physically crumbling.
  4. Presence of beetles: In some instances, you may note the presence of adult beetles. This can be either as they emerge from the larvae stage or as they are laying their eggs.


If you suspect that you may have an infestation, then time is of the essence. Call us today for a quick response and a 100% guaranteed solution to your woodworm problem.

Treating a woodworm infestation yourself can be possible, but it depends on the severity of the infestation and the type of woodworm involved.

It is also worth noting that different types of woodworm require different treatments. This is a compelling reason to get a woodworm infestation professionally treated.
