All types of woodworm may seem the same, but they do not. The type of woodworm is very important. For example, the common furniture beetle tends to like softwood timbers in loft spaces and floors. Death Watch beetle likes hardwoods such as Ash and oak. They also make a ticking noise that can be heard. It is important to diagnose which beetle has infested as the two treatments are very different.
