What are Wood-eating insects (woodworms)?
Wood-eating insects feed on treated wood in residential areas: floors, casings indoors, any type of wooden furniture, wood-carved temple temples, wooden decorations, wooden boats, books, insect collections, etc. The imperfect forms of the insects are eggs, larva, nymphs, and the perfect insect that aims to reproduce. Imperfect forms are the most destructive (usually during the larva stage).
Depending on the moisture conditions of the wood, the chemicals contained in the wood, wood-eating insects can live for a long time even years, so the harm they cause is not immediately noticed. It is easy to see the harm they cause in the woods because they create holes, circular or oval or pin head size, and are usually full of sawdust. They can penetrate softwood (pine, fir) as well as hardwood (oak, chestnut, and maple).
