woodworm treatment


We are trying to restore a 1940`s dresser which has clearly had woodworm in the past. We have given it one coat of treatment. Is this enough? How do we know if its worked?

Thanks for your time!

woodworm treatment


Try this link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_furniture_beetle
It may be old damage and the larvae may be long gone. Article says they've a four-year life cycle so unless you've seen evidence of damage in last 4-5 years, it is probably safe but that is only a guess on my part.
There is a link at end of the article that may be useful.
