In Response To: woodworm in antique clock (Barry)

Baygon aresol will do the trick, if you can't use that where youare, see if you could use a bug bomb, for an apartment fumigation. Put the piece in a garage and close it up for a week. By no means should you leave the piece in your home for another day. One of the stages of their reproduction cycle includes flight, these are powder post beetles and they can invade your home and furniture, and do great damage. If you are patient, they will die this winter if you place the clock where the temp will go below zero for at least two days for three spells. You can find out a lot more by searching "Powder Post Beetle".

As for the worm holes I think antiques with worm holes earned honestly are a badge of distinction and can be left alone.
