Todas las especies de Teredinidae utilizan la madera como alimento, Boynton & Miller (1927) registraron la presencia de microorganismos capaces de contribuir en la degradacion de celulosa.
Algunos datos historicos sobre la familia Teredinidae se encuentran en los trabajos taxonomicos de Clench & Turner (1946) y Turner (1959) sobre las costas Atlantica y Pacifica de Norteamerica, en Kofoid & Miller (1927) sobre la bahia de San Francisco y en los trabajos sobre biologia y estados larvales de Turner & Johnson (1971), Turner & Boyle (1975), Hoagland & Turner (1981) y Turner (1984).
