Damp and Timber Specialists for 50 years

No, woodworm cannot eat through plastic, as they are specifically adapted to bore through and feed on wood.

Woodworm larvae have specialised jaws that are designed to grind and chew through tough wood fibres, which they use as a food source, whilst adult wood boring beetles use the cracks and crevices of wood to lay their eggs.

If you are concerned about a woodworm infestation in your home, the team at Prokil can carry out a thorough timber survey to determine the extent of the problem and recommend suitable treatment and repairs. Contact us today on 0800 048 9488 to book a visit from one of our experienced surveyors.
