So, what is a woodworm then? In fact, a woodworm is a general term for the larvae, or eggs, a group of beetles, not a specific type of insect. There are a wide variety of beetles that fall into this category. They all operate in a similar way. First, the adult beetles settle on the wood and lay their eggs, or larvae, on the timber. If they can, they lay the larvae just under the surface. The larvae hatch into worms, which feast on the timber, burrowing small holes into the surface. With time, they grow up into beetles, and then lay their own larvae, which repeats the cycle.
As woodworm burrow into a wooden surface, they create a maze of tiny holes. This is not only cosmetic damage. With time, it can even weaken the structural integrity of the timber. Removing the woodworm is urgent. By using a high-quality woodworm treatment, Dorset property owners can ensure that the beetles and the woodworm are killed, preventing them from causing more damage.
