Woodworm is the generic name given to a variety of insects that cause damage to timber diagnosed by small holes and accompanying timber dust in any timber that is allowed to become damp either by high humidity or a local water source. The size and shape of the holes vary greatly depending on the insect causing them but are all treated in relatively the same way. The holes and dust are caused by the matured insect emerging from the timber. The extent of the damage will vary greatly dependent on severity of infestation and type of insect.
In the UK, the primary culprits are; Common Furniture Beetle, House Longhorn Beetle, Deathwatch Beetle and Powderpost Beetle.
