Common Types of Termites
Termites are present in 70% of countries around the globe, and they easily outnumber humans by a ratio of ten to one. The most common species found in the US are dampwood termites, drywood termites, subterranean termites, and Formosan termites.
Dampwood termites require higher humidity and regular water contact to survive. These are often found in trees or structures with direct water to wood contact — such as a leaky wooden siding or roof.
Drywood termites form new colonies by penetrating wood through tiny holes. You are likely to see them in cracks and crevices in a structure.
Subterranean termites thrive in underground colonies or moist areas aboveground. Subterranean termites eat 24 hours a day, seven days a week, making them the most destructive among termite species. This ravenous eating severely compromises a home’s structural stability.
Formosan termites, originally from China, are the most aggressive of the termite species. They organize massive underground colonies and build intricate mud nests within a structure’s walls. Formosan termites can be difficult to control once they infest a structure.
