 WOOD DESTROYING ORGANISMS

Is it true that woodworms and termites do not each chipboard?

False. There is an erroneous widely held belief about chipboard has self-defense againts the attack of insects that feed themselves from wood, because in the manufacture of this material includes glues and others chemicals elements.

It is generally believed that neither termites nor woodworms eat objects made with this kind of materials (chipboard), as are furniture, shelves, etc. In fact, it is just the contrary since chipboard is composed by tiny wood fractions glued together in a compact way, that once finished the manufacture process, as result from it, are the chipboards, which they have a very soft consistency being particularly vulnerable  to the attack of the above mentioned xylophagous insects, which obtain the cellulose content in the wood of the chipboards to feed themselves.

What could happen if I place at my home any furniture or wooden object affected by any wood borer plague? It can this plague spread to other furniture at home, as well as all materials which are composed by wood, as for instance parquet floors and wood plank floors?

Yes, given the way these insects of wood acts, there is an enormous possibility that woodworms look for food in other wood near to them. Therefore is a serious risk if we place a any furniture or any other wooden object that is affected by wood bores which are in its inner, because these insects will spread extremely fast to all furnitures or wooden belogings that its physical locations are at the same rooms of buildings, homes, etc.

The definitive solution is to treat wood with Red Demon products, first the affected furniture or object to cure it eliminating the plague instantly and then, all rest of wood (furnitures, floors, beams, etc) must be also treated to prevent from the attack of wood destroying insects, using for all it the product: Red Demon Household Use, or for cases to be applied by a professional in the wood treatment sector with, Red Demon Professional Use.

Can the heartwood be attacked by xylophagous insects?

Is a quite common misconception to believe that the hardest wood species and also its heartwood parts can not be attacked by any wood destructor insect. While it is true that the operating way these insects has is to feed themselves from the cellulose content in wood, is first to attack the softest wood, as well as its sapwood (soft part of wood), but in the absence of soft wood, its sapwood part or after it has been consumed by  such insects, this plague will seek its feed in more hard wood species, or will iniciate their attack to the heartwood (hard part of wood).

For these reasons, it is important to highlight that there is nothing in the characteristics of the different species of hard woods that impedes the wood destruction advancement of this plague, no matter its hardness degree, since the sole purpose these insects had is feed themselves, causing extreme destruction in wood, not only aesthetically but also in its structure.

It is true that if my furnitures, beams, structural elements, doors, windows, etc. are made with hard wood species as can be  oak  or ebony between other more, an attack to the hardest wood species as these are by any kind of insect that feeds from wood is impossible?

Completely false. All woods, does not matter the degree of hardness of its fiber texture, whether are very soft or hard, both equally are exposed to the risk to be attacked by any insect that feed  itself from wood destroying it. This is why all wood that has not received the proper treatment with RED DEMON products, is in serious danger if a necessary treatment with the above mentioned products is not performed.
