Drywood Termites 101

Drywood Termites measure about 7/16 inches long and are usually a light yellow to black color. Their wings are clear or smoky gray and have three heavy veins along the edge. Also on their wings are cross veins which resemble trapezoidal shapes. You will hardly ever see Drywood termites, as these pests like to hide out in undetected areas such as behind the walls or under wooden floors. The only times they come out is while they are repairing work or infesting homes. They are usually out in the summer months and live inside of wood, never getting in contact with soil. The moisture that they do get comes from the humid air which is why they are normally found in areas with this type of weather.

Signs of an Infestation

Drywood termites often get into your home from furniture that came from an area that has drywood termites. Their damage to furniture may go unnoticed until your furniture breaks and, upon closer inspection, you will notice that there are tunnels and pathways chewed into the wood. You might also notice piles of termite feces around your furniture. Any furniture that is made from wood is susceptible to an infestation of drywood termites. Their colonies are small, only about 5,000 individuals, so it takes them awhile to do any significant damage, but if they get into the walls of your home and begin to eat the foundation of your home, the damages they incur can be very dangerous and costly.
