It is highly unlikely that a woodworm infestation will go away on its own. Woodworm is caused by the larvae of wood-boring beetles, which feed on the wood. As long as there is untreated timber available, woodworm will continue to spread, leading to further damage.
In order to get rid of woodworm, it’s important to treat affected and nearby timbers with the correct woodworm treatment. This should be done by a professional, as they will have the knowledge and expertise to use the correct method and product to match the severity of the infestation and the species of beetle.
It is also important to identify and address any underlying moisture problems, as woodworm larvae typically thrive in damp, humid conditions.
If you suspect that you have a woodworm infestation, it’s best to take action as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your timbers and minimise the risk of it spreading further.
