If there’s one thing that woodworms love, it’s wood rot. Woodworm have evolved to feast on damp, decaying timber – originally on the forest floor, but sometimes in your home, if moisture levels are high.
Woodworms come in many shapes and sizes, with species favoring softwoods and hardwoods. The most common culprit of infestations in the UK being the Common Furniture Beetle. Don’t be misled by the name though, as they don’t discriminate when it comes to food – any timber will do; providing the conditions are correct.
Other decay organisms and timber infestations include Death Watch Beetle, Powder Post Beetle, Dry Rot and Stringy oak rot.
