The Quick and Efficient Choice for Woodworm Treatment in Poole

Woodworm can be highly destructive and can invade not just structural timbers, but anything in your home that is comprised of wood. While the damage caused can vary from one species to the next, it’s important not to underestimate the long-term impact woodworm can have on your property. If you suspect that your home might be affected, contact No. 1 Home now to see if you require woodworm treatment, Poole.

What is Woodworm?

It’s not uncommon for people to assume that woodworm is a type of worm. The name is rather misleading as the term actually refers to the larval stage of several species of wood-boring beetle. These beetles lay their eggs on the surface and after hatching, the larvae burrow down and begin consuming the timber. The long-term effects can be devastating, and for years, No. 1 Home has provided Poole woodworm treatment services that have helped stave off disaster.

Typically, a woodworm infestation will occur between May and September as this is their breeding season. During this time, these beetles are drawn to damp environments, which provide the perfect habitat in which to lay their eggs.

    • Common Furniture Beetle
    • Deathwatch Beetle

    How Can I Tell if I Have Woodworm?

    While we always recommend having a professional diagnose the problem, there are usually tell-tale signs that indicate the presence of woodworm. These include holes in the timber usually connecting to tunnels, bore dust around the edge of the holes, crumbling or damaged timbers and dead beetles. If you spot any of these signs, you will require woodworm treatment in Poole.
