Many people assume that a woodworm is a particular type of insect, but actually this is a common mistake. Woodworm is the word for a group of related insects, or more specifically, their larvae. The beetles lay their larvae in the wood because this provides the ideal environment for the larvae to grow to maturity. Within the timber, the larva is protected from potential threats like predators, and it also has the food supply that the resulting grub needs to grow into a mature beetle. The beetles then return to the timber to lay their own larvae, which repeat the process.
There are many types of woodworm, but the process is broadly the same for them. The problem is that each larva will hatch a grub, and this grub will eat a small portion of the wood. This is visible as a small hole, like a tunnel, which is usually round and typically between 1 and 1.5 mm in diameter. You may also see beetles emerging from the holes; if so, this could be a sign of a very significant infestation. You should act quickly to get the best woodworm treatment Batcombe has to offer from our team at Bio-Kil.
In nature, these beetles would use damp trees and decaying wood. In properties, they will be drawn to similar conditions, in other words timber that has a higher level of moisture. This timber could be furniture, but typically it will be floorboards, joists and other structural timbers. This is more common in homes with a high moisture level, which could be caused by problems of damp, or by poor ventilation. Therefore, the solution needs to be woodworm treatment which will resolve the problem but also remove the conditions that are present in the Batcombe property.
When it comes to woodworm treatment, Batcombe customers can be confident that we will do just that. We will treat the wood to remove any woodworm.
