Anobium punctatum (Furniture Eaters) are a big threat to the furniture. These can be controlled by injecting, spraying and brushing liquid insecticides or by placing the object in a room filled with insecticide gas. Fungus also stains and weakens the furniture. They appear in the form of white formation on the furniture. One can get rid of fungus by just wiping it off with a dry cloth.
