I did some research and did my own when I found woodworm. I did learn that when you see a hole in the wood, it is where the worm has changed into a fly and decided to leave. so you are too late for that one. Some products say you inject it into the hole, this obviously is a con as the creature has already gone.But they sort of hibernate in the winter in the wood, and when it warms up a bit, they take flight - you might find some very slow-moving flying bugs around about now. The liquid I got I painted onto the surface of the wood on all surfaces including the hidden areas, and I had a spray that I used into a sealed-up room and left for a day. it seemed to do the trick, there was no sign the following year.
