It can be very difficult to detect an invasion of Drywood Termites. In fact, it’s not unusual for a home to be damaged extensively before an infestation is found. They live inside the wood, almost completely out of sight. The most common signs of Drywood Termites that people notice are tiny holes in wood and fecal pellets on the floor, which are pushed out of those holes by the termites. This is evidence of a mature colony.
This species of termites lives in colonies of up to about 5,000, which includes the queen, king, soldiers, nymphs, and pseudergates, also known as false workers. The following are some of the descriptive features of various types of Drywood Termites:
Drywood termites are most commonly found in older homes that have sound, non-decayed wood. They build their colonies in wood frames, fascia boards, wood flooring, attics, doors, furniture, and window sills. When they initially get into a home, the winged termites known as alates or swarmers make their way inside through openings and cracks in the wood. Drywood termites have adapted to dry environments by developing a more impermeable cuticle that better retains body moisture. They are also able to resorb moisture from their feces, and this process is what gives their excrement a unique hexagonal shape.
