Drywood Termites: Questions and Answers

If you suspect that your home has a termite infestation, you may be a little confused about where to start. A good place to begin is to determine if your home has an infestation of traditional subterranean termites or if the colony of insects is actually comprised of drywood termites. The pest control company will be glad to have this information if it comes time to fumigate your home, because drywood termite control varies from the steps taken to control the infiltration of subterranean termites. These are the questions that you should be asking to get the answers that you need.

Q. What is the difference between drywood termites and subterranean termites?

A. The main difference is that the subterranean termites need soil to burrow under your home, whereas the Drywood variety can make a home of any wood in your home and swarm at certain times of the year.

Q. How are the two types of termites similar?

A. Both feed on wood and convert it into cellulose material for consumption, which can cause extensive damage to the wood in your home. Although subterranean termites tend to cause a great deal of damage to foundations, studs, and walls, drywood termites are just as likely to be found in your furniture or in books.

Q. What are some signs that I am dealing with drywood termites?

A. Drywood termites are known to leave behind droppings that look like specks or coffee grounds in such places as windowsills or below lamps. You may also find detached wings left behind. When they are swarming they are easier to see at night as they will fly around light fixtures in large groups.
