Has anyone had problems with woodworm particularly in freshly sawn timber, particularly oak. I live in the midlands never had a problem with woodworm but I’ve been warned to apply woodworm killer to some newly acquired oak. What is other’s experiences of woodworm and do you apply chemicals to your timber?
I’ve worked on many properties in and around the west Midlands, and neber came across woodworm problems on any building inside or out.
Ever the national trust Stately homes I’ve seen don’t seem to suffer much, it’s all about mould and mildew to my knowledge.
I am usually wrong so take it with a pinch of salt
