The Woodworm Woe: Understanding the Enemy

Before we jump into the solution, let’s first understand the problem. Woodworm refers to the larvae of any wood-boring beetle, rather than one particular species.

In the UK, the most common type is the Common Furniture Beetle. The larvae stage is the most destructive, as these tiny critters burrow into wood, causing structural damage.

Now, you might be thinking, “But I don’t have any antique furniture!” Here’s the kicker: woodworm isn’t picky. It can infest floorboards, structural timbers, and even your brand-new kitchen cabinets.

According to a report by the British Pest Control Association, woodworm causes millions of pounds worth of damage every year in the UK alone.
