What is woodworm?
Woodworm is the generic name given to many different forms of wood boring insects. Unlike its name, woodworm are in fact not worms but larvae. They can infest timbers of any age, old or new, and can be found in both residential and commercial properties.
There are many different species of woodworm which can infest timbers but usually those most often found are the common furniture, death watch, weevil and powder post beetle.
Each woodworm beetle has characteristic features and cause recognisable damage during their life cycle of timber infestation. Prokil have been assisting property owners for over 50 years to correctly identify and to carry out the best form of treatment for woodworm.
