In our blog we have spoken very often about woodworms, the damage they can cause and the methods of struggle.
Today we focus on the various species of this feared weed.
It mainly attacks beams, floors, skirting boards, furniture and wicker products.
It is called "Clock of Death" because its sexual appeal consists in banging the head against the wood generating an audible but slight thud with regular frequency. It mainly attacks hard timbers like oak, chestnut, ash and beech.
Commonly called "Capricorn of the houses", it attacks soft woods and structures such as beams and trusses.
Vulgarly known as Common Lictide it predominantly attacks hard tropical ties and the back of furniture, sofas and armchairs.
