Woodworm…

….is almost inevitable in 150 year old house. The larvae of a number of beetles eat the wood and poo out the result – some of which can be seen on the lower right of the photo which is a piece of one of our floorboards. The result is wood that is essentially hollowed out and brittle.

Sadly the entire top floor of our cottage was similar to the photo and needed replacing.
