How do I tell if I have a woodworm infestation?

Woodworm is the generic term for wood boring insects. These pests migrate into your home usually by flight or by migration from other infested timber, where they can cause severe damage and irreversible loss.

By far the most common wood boring pest in the UK is the Common Furniture Beetle (Anobium punctatum). This pest will infest all kinds of timber from structural timber to furniture, softwoods to hardwoods, painted, varnished or untouched, and even manmade products such as plywood, this little pest is not a fussy eater!

The damage is actually caused by the Beetle larvae tunnelling through the timber. The larva live for around 3 years, continually eating the timber until they are ready to mature into adult Beetles. At this point the larva will pupate and emerge through the surface of the timber as adults. With the sole intention of mating, reproduction quickly takes place and the whole process begins again.

Small holes resembling dart imprints on the surface of the timber, powdery dust and small dark brown beetles all resemble the characteristics of an active infestation. If you notice any of these characteristics, contact our office and request a timber survey from one of our experienced and qualified surveyors.

An independent company

Throughout our website and literature, you will not find any association to manufacturers as we are not a supplier managed business. Many companies will associate themselves with one specific manufacturer meaning they will only recommend products from that manufacturer or supplier who will then often guarantee their work. This limits their availability to choose the right product for you and also means your guarantee is likely provided by a company which could cease trading in the future.

Dryfix are an independent company, and as such we specify products from a wide range of manufacturers, enabling us to specify what's most suitable for you and your requirements. Our guarantees are also provided by an independent FSA regulated Insurance company.

If you're in need of advice or assistance please don't hesitate to contact us.
