Common Furniture Beetle

This looks like the classic beetle in terms of shape and size – but has light, green-brown coloring. A relatively small insect, it is still capable of causing structural damage to your property. Bores extensively creating rounded tunnels, usually going with the grain of the wood – and will fly to find new wood sources.

Death Watch Beetle

A slightly furry, bee-like beetle, with both dark and light brown colouring, this small insect is capable of inflecting severe timber damage. The Death Watch Beetle loves rotting hardwoods such as Elm and Oak. Often associated with white rot, this beetle is a committed and extensive tunnel builder, and will take flight to find other rotting wood if needed.

Ambrosia Beetle

TA small,blackish-brown beetle with distinctive head fan antennae. Mainly stays in lumber yards and woodland settings and can cause significant damage to timber stocks. Tunnels extensively near the surface of hardwood, mainly focusing attention along the grain of the timber. It flies within its near environment to find wood sources. Creates rounded tunnels filled with a flour-like frass – and is rarely found in domestic or business properties (which are good news considering the high level of damage it can cause).
