Brockley

David Jones CH (d. 1974) was an artist and draughtsman who served for almost three years in the trenches. It left him with a lifelong interest in warfare and soldiers, as well as two nervous breakdowns.

He joined Eric Gill’s artists’ colony and worked for various presses as a wood engraver.
Jones’ writing mixes Welsh myths, King Arthur and The Bible. His best known work ‘In Parenthesis’ of 1937, is a long and ambitious mixture of prose and poetry. It gained a select group of admirers including Auden and Eliot.

Perhaps his work is too overloaded with allusions to be entirely successful, though the trials of his representative Briton, John Ball, are human enough, with plenty of the raw physical details of war.

How to tackle woodworm in wooden flooring

Wood flooring can add traditional beauty to your home, but your delight at finding some lovely old floorboards beneath your carpet can turn to despair when you discover that your wooden flooring is peppered with tiny holes caused by woodworm. But what can you do to restore your wooden floorboards to their former glory and create a stunning feature in your home, rather than an unsightly beetle buffet?

Signs of woodworm

Woodworm are beetle larvae that feed on wood, leaving their ‘home’ when they reach maturity.

There are a number of tell-tale signs that indicate woodworm activity including:

  • tiny holes
  • powdery dust called ‘frass’ around the holes
  • crumbling around the edges of joists and boards
  • small beetles flying around your house

It’s possible that the woodworm have actually gone; simply leaving the evidence behind them, but it is wise to have your flooring inspected by a pest control company, just to be sure. If woodworm are active in your home, a pest controller will treat the flooring with insecticide to kill the larvae and break the breeding cycle. Small areas of affected wood can be frozen, but larger infestations may necessitate fumigation.

Tests will be carried out to determine if the woodworm are still active, so it may be a few months before you can set about having your flooring restored.

Repairing woodworm damage

Woodworm need moist timber so ensuring that your wooden floorboards are dry will help to prevent a reinfection. Once the woodworm have been cleared, allow the floor to dry out completely. Any pieces of severely damaged timber should be replaced with pre-treated wood.

The remaining floor area should be tackled by a firm of floor sanding specialists who are experienced in restoring and repairing wood floors. You can do some of the preparatory work yourself by filling in the holes with an application of beeswax and turpentine or wood filler. Once the filling is dry, the whole floor can be sanded and then stained and sealed, or painted if you prefer.
