Woodworm Control in Cambridge and Suffolk

Woodworm can be a seriously damaging problem to buildings and furniture, and is caused by the larvae of any wood-boring beetle. They invade and consume wood, then leave when they’re mature. Damage caused could weaken infrastructure, but it’s not just old buildings and furniture that can be affected.

How can I tell if I have a woodworm infestation?

There are a few tell tale signs that you have a woodworm infestation, some of which are:

  • Small round holes in woodwork, similar to that pictured above
  • Dust around the holes in the wood
  • Crumbly  edges to boards or joists
