A number of insects are able to use wood as a food source and some of these may cause serious damage to building timbers in the UK. This Digest introduces wood-boring insects and illustrates the types of damage which are serious enough to require remedial treatment, distinguishing them from other, less significant types of damage.
A revised edition of the Digest that was originally published in 1986.
