Drywood Termites

Drywood termites enter your home during the termite “swarming” season, which varies, depending on where you live. During swarming season, termites fly away from their colonies to establish new ones.
Termites can come from many places, including:

  • Neighbors’ houses
  • Fallen or dead trees
  • Wood piles
  • Utility poles

Important facts about Drywood termites:

  • Found mostly in warm coastal and southern regions.
  • Live in sound, dry wood in inaccessible places, such as roof rafters, eaves, deep inside walls, attics, crawlspaces, and foundations
  • Can also infest cabinets, furnishings, and wood trim
  • Require no external source of moisture or contact with the soil to survive
  • Can infest any type of home – new or old, wood-framed or concrete

Termite Facts

It only takes a small opening to invite swarming termites into your home. Many different types of buildings can be infested – houses, apartment buildings, and businesses are all susceptible. In fact, many public buildings have been treated for termite infestations.
