Which Insects Destroy Wooden Furniture

Most people have prized wooden furniture. Often passed down through generations. This furniture is very valuable both financially and emotionally so its important to protect it from the many insects that can destroy it. It is best to contact professional carpenter ant exterminator Toronto in the Greater Toronto Area to declare your home ant-free as soon as possible!

Most insects don’t actually eat wood, but some do. 

Termites are dangerous insects that can rip through a beautiful piece of wood in just a few days. They are common across the Americas and cause millions of dollars in damage every year. So they are clearly a big danger to your armor. 

Powderpost beetles are also a serious threat to wooden furniture. They go for dry wood and can cause an enormous amount of damage to your home and furniture. They are more common in southern states but with global warming there is no telling where they might migrate to escape the heat. 

You will know there is a beetle infestation because of the presence of fine sawdust near wood that has been infested. What is worse is your new home may start out infested because it was built with infested wood. This does happen and can be a nightmare to deal with. 

Carpenter ants are also a major threat. They usually start their colonies outside and then slowly move into a home. But once they are there they can do a lot of damage. The workers travel around the home looking for safe places to make nests and can damage furniture, especially furniture stored in the basement or attic.
