What is Woodworm?
Have you found small holes in your timber with small piles of fresh dust around them? Have you seen small beetles between 3mm to 5mm living and dead around your property? If so, it is likely you have an active woodworm infestation.
Woodworm is a generic term used for a number of different wood-boring beetles. Generally, wood-boring beetles lay their eggs during the months of April through to September which can cause serious infestations and serious structural damage.
Signs of Woodworm
The key to stopping woodworm before they cause irreparable harm to your property is identifying them early. You may not realise that you have a woodworm problem until the resulting damage becomes visible. If left untreated woodworm can seriously damage items.

How To Get Rid of Woodworm
Identifying a woodworm infestation can be challenging as woodworm larvae can go unnoticed for many years while they feed. This is why knowing the signs of woodworm is just as critical as being able to identify the beetles/larvae themselves.
This is where a trained, professional surveyor can really be of help. Trained surveyors can correctly identify the presence and extent of a woodworm infestation and this will help you to choose the most effective control method.
2. Choose Your Method
When it comes to getting rid of woodworm, you have two options: DIY or hire a professional.
