Caption: Common furniture beetle (Anobium punctatum), coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). The larval stage of this woodboring beetle are part of a group of such larvae, generically known as woodworm. The larvae feed for several years on the interior of wooden objects. They then pupate just under the surface and the adult form emerges from exit holes like those seen here. The adult forms reproduce, and the female lays eggs in a wooden object, starting the life cycle once more. Magnification: x12 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
