Telltale signs of a woodworm problem.

There are usually several signs by which you can tell if you have woodworm infestation in your property. What’s more, this way you’ll know if the woodworms are active.

  • Bore dust: This is one of the indications one of the beetles has chosen a wooden element as its new home.
  • Fresh holes in the timber: You will definitely see them, especially if they’re freshly bored.
  • Dead adult beetles: They’re usually found around the timber their baby beetles infest.
  • Live adults: there’s a chance you see living beetles in May and October.
  • Eggs and larvae: Both are not easily spotted with the naked eye. Yet, you might accidentally spot them.
  • Weak and damaged wood and flooring: Depending on the wood floors you got, the species may differ. Yet, the beetles can easily chew their way through your the floorboards, thus, make them weak and easily breakable.
  • Collapsing wooden elements: Other parts of your home like wooden roof elements may get infested, weakened and crumble literally on your head.

Here is a more detailed guide which will show you how to identify a woodworm infestation.

  • review rating 5  I would have been nice if the world worked in a way that if you once get bed bugs and get rid of them they never reappear, but it doesn't. I've had to call for bed bug treatment two times in the last five years and have trusted Panther Pest Control both times. They get the job done without any hassle, plus the prices are budget-friendly. I hope I never have to use them again, but totally recommend them to people in need of adequate pest control treatment in the London area.

  • review rating 5  Rang the phone, got a quote and booked right away. In two days the flat was already treated for bed bugs and a second visit was scheduled. Quick and professional guys! Loved using Panther Pest Control and strongly recommend them. The price was ok, the exterminators were thorough and gave me some advice. Hopefully I won't have to use them again though.

  • review rating 5  We’ve never had this many squirrels in the yard before. Maybe one or two have been spotted the previous spring but this year the population has increased a lot! We are afraid of disease transmission and I had to call the exterminators. I’m glad no squirrel were killed. Instead, they were safely trapped and removed from the property.

  • review rating 5  When my husband and I returned from the holiday in Eastern Europe everything was fine until our bodies got covered in red itchy marks. There were bed bugs all over the apartment. Luckily, the company had a free slot for bed bug treatment on the very same day. We had to spend the night on the bed to lure the bed bugs out and they were fully exterminated by the pesticide.

  • review rating 4  The nest in the backyard turned out to be made by wasps not bees, which made us call professional pest technicians to deal with it. They carefully removed it and no one was hurt during or after the treatment. Very good job.
