Effective control of woodworm

in Zaandam?

There are several species of woodworms, each belonging to different families of wood beetles. Some common species are the Common Woodworm Beetle (Anobium punctatum), the Large Woodworm Beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum) and the House Longhorn Beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus)

Common Woodworm Beetle (Anobium punctatum):

The Common Woodworm Beetle is a common species known for its small round holes in wood. The larvae of this beetle bore into the wood and feed on cellulose, which can cause significant damage to wooden structures and furniture. Identifying the Common Woodworm Beetle is often the first step in diagnosing a woodworm infestation.

Large Woodworm Beetle (Xestobium rufovillosum):

The Large Woodworm Beetle is distinguished by its larger size and its larvae known for their ability to bore larger tunnels in the wood. This species can cause significant damage to wooden beams and structures, especially in older buildings. An infestation with the Large Woodworm Beetle often requires a thorough approach to prevent further damage.

House longhorn beetle (Hylotrupes bajulus):

The House Longhorn Beetle is another common species of wood beetle known for its longevity and larger larvae. This beetle can cause serious damage to wooden structures, especially load-bearing beams and wooden floors. The presence of the House Longhorn Beetle can be determined by the presence of large oval exit openings in the wood, as well as sawdust-like remains around the affected area.

It is important to identify the specific species of woodworm causing an infestation for effective control. In case of suspected woodworm infestations, it is recommended to consult a professional pest controller. You can request a free inspection from us to determine the extent of the contamination and take appropriate measures.
