Caption: Wood-boring beetle larvae. Macrophotograph of beetle larvae infesting dead oak wood. Two white larvae are seen in the many round boring holes. The larvae hatch from beetle eggs laid in crevices in the surface and feed on the wood, quickly reducing it to sawdust. These could be either powder post beetle larvae, Lyctus fuscus, or furniture beetle (woodworm) larvae, Anobium punctatum. Magnification: x1`at 35mm size.
