Wood Damaging Beetles

Woodworm describes a number of species of wood borer beetles that attack wood. The term “woodworm” is used as it is the larval or “worm” stage of the insects’ life where they bore and eat wood.

Wood damaging pests can attack expensive antiques and even a building’s structural components. Wood borer pests have managed to develop an astonishing variety of life forms, and can even live comfortably in dry wood.
