Without woodworm treatment, the wood in houses, including attic joists, can become infected by woodworm.
What is Woodworm?
Woodworm is the name for insects that bore through wood as larvae where they live until fully formed as beetles. A female insect will lay her eggs on wood and when these eggs hatch the larvae will live off the wood for up to 3 years.
Following this they bore out of the wood and mate with another female beetle and the process starts all over again.
Woodworm is often associated with old furniture but they can also be extremely damaging to structural wood including joists and attic beams.
If woodworm is left and not handled quickly, it can weaken and harm the structure of your building.
Could My House Have Woodworm?
Most people think that they can’t possibly have woodworm.
But in fact it is fairly common in older houses and even in fairly new houses. Attics beams, joists and wooden floors are often affected and sometimes it goes unseen for years until it is too late. Like many other infections if it is dealt with early it can be treated effectively but if it is ignored the householder ends up having to replace roofs or floors at great expense
