Woodworm is a wood-eating larvae stage of some species of beetle. The beetles lay eggs that later turn into the woodworms inside furniture or wooden structures. To find an infestation of wood, run your hand along the furniture, walls or any other suspect places showing powder or holes.

The resulting of a woodworm presence is the damage caused to your furniture and any wooden structures. A building with woodworm problems could be a result of a lack of ventilation in a building with a high level of humidity.

It may be controlled by applying an insecticide, using our Safety, Health and Environmental Policy Guideline.
