Unfortunately, there are a few different types of wood destroying insects that can damage the furniture and wooden structure of your home. Some of these wood destroying insects include termites, carpenter ants, and certain types of beetles. Any of these wood destroying insects can be found in wooden structures inside or outside your home, burrowing, nesting, or feeding on the wood.
Wood Destroying Insect Risks
These insects will dig and burrow through any wood, creating tunnels and holes that compromise the structural integrity of homes or furniture. These tunnels are usually quite deep and lengthy, and unfortunately aren’t usually noticed until extensive damage has already been done. If the damage is severe, those certain areas might need to be repaired or replaced.
Preventing Wood Destroying Insects
Sealing possible entry ways into your home is one of the best ways to prevent wood destroying insects. Using caulk or a silicone sealant, seal the cracks or crevices in your home’s foundation and around any utility openings for pipes or vents. Remove any wood from your home that has been damaged by water, since that will attract these insects.
