Deathwatch Beetle TreatmentDeathwatch Beetles are the largest and most vigorous of the UK’s wood-boring insects

They are usually found in hardwoods such as certain types of oak. They are hard to eradicate due to their long life cycles – they can take 7 years to go from larvae to adult beetle, depending on the type of timber, moisture and temperatures they are living in.

The principles in dealing with all types of woodboring insects is to disrupt one of their life cycle stages.
