Woodworm larvae are usually a creamy white color and have curved bodies. It’s highly unlikely you’ll ever actually see woodworm larvae, as they stay hidden munching away on timber until they are fully-grown. Adult wood boring beetles look different depending on their species, the Common Furniture beetle is a brown winged beetle, typically 3-4mm in length.
If your tree is softened by decay; it is possible to have these beetles.
An insecticide that is permethrin based can be used but always follow the directions on the container.
