Woodworm lifestyle, characteristic and growth

Woodworm is the wood-eating larvae of any of many species of beetle. Signs of woodworm are usually holes in the wood (around 1mmto 1.5mm in diameter), with live infestations showing powder around the holes. The grubs feed on the wooden item causing both structural and cosmetic damage, before pupating and hatching as beetles which then breed, lay eggs, and start the whole process again. As the beetles evolved consuming dead wood in various forest habitats, most grubs, if not all, typically require that the wooden item contain a higher moisture content than is normally found in wooden items in a typical home.


Timber damage and decay

Timber is one of the oldest construction materials known. It has been used since man created the first dwelling and is unlikely to diminish in the foreseeable future. However, timber is susceptible to deterioration; particularly under damp conditions. As a first step towards understanding deterioration and remedial treatment a little knowledge of the timber itself is beneficial.
