You might not realise that you’ve got a woodworm problem until the resulting damage becomes visible, so early identification is important before they trigger more damage.
Different wood boring insects favour different types of woods, which will help you to discover what kind of woodworm is causing your problems. Some prefer softwoods like pine, spruce and cedar while some like hardwoods such as oak, ash, sweet chestnut and mahogany. No matter the species, all of them will leave a number of signs, if you have an active woodworm infestation.
There are many tell tale signs that can help you identify woodworm and a potential woodworm infestation. They include:
Small round exit holes within your woodwork, similar to the holes in a dart board.
Fine, powdery dust around these holes (known as frass).
Crumbly edges to boards and joists.
Tunnels within the timber
Weak and damaged timbers or flooring.
Adult woodworm beetles emerging from hole within the timber.
Dead beetles around a suspected woodworm infestation or on window sills
