Woodworm is generally not harmful to humans, as the beetles and larvae do not directly pose a health risk. However, if the woodworm infestation is severe, it can weaken the structural integrity of wooden structures and furniture, which can be a safety hazard.
Furthermore, a woodworm infestation can be an indicator of an underlying damp problem, which can contribute to the growth of mould and mildew. Prolonged exposure to mould and mildew can cause health problems, especially for individuals with allergies or respiratory problems.
