Wood Borer

The term ‘wood borer’ covers many types of wood boring beetles, some with wonderful names like Auger, Jewel, Stag and Pinhole Borers. Furthermore, the term 'woodworm' is used as it is the larval or "worm" stage of the insects' life where they bore and eat wood and describes a number of species of wood-boring beetles that attack wood. But, whatever they are called, you’ll want to say goodbye to them.

Here are some helpful facts about Wood Borers:

  • Adult beetles lay their eggs in cracks in wood. Outdoors this isn’t much of a problem, but if they lay your eggs inside your property they might infest floorboards, furniture, wooden beams and any other wooden objects.
  • Larvae burrow deep into the wood where they feed – and in the process make a maze of tunnels over several years.

If you don’t have specialist Wood Borer control the larvae can seriously weaken the timbers in a building.  If left untreated, this may lead to structural failure of timbers.

FACT: The Deathwatch Beetle makes a 'ticking' sound inside wooden timbers. Occupants of medieval sick rooms often heard this sound whilst keeping watch over the dead and dying, hence the name.
