Woodworm is a description commonly and loosely applied to all wood-boring beetles. The most common wood-boring insect is the Common Furniture Beetle and is estimated to infest about 75% of properties in the UK. The Wood Weevil is also relatively common in buildings and is usually associated with wet rot.
Without treatment, woodworm can cause significant damage to the structure of a property and, depending on the level of infestation, can result in areas within a property becoming structurally unsound.
