The Drywood Termite not only eats the wood structure, but lives inside the wood structure. These insects will construct a virtual city within the wood, complete with galleries or tunnels to get around it. They can enter the home by flying in or being carried on previously infested wood, such as furniture or construction materials. Each year they swarm as a way of starting new colonies. Attic and eave areas are prime targets for new colonies, along with windowsills, baseboards, beams and doorframes. Any exterior wood that can be bored into is a good place to look for a colony. They can even attack furniture, paper, cloth, wallboard or any other cellulose material.
In the Spring termites begin to swarm. If you see termites swarming it is a sign your home may already be infested. Contact a professional pest control company immediately and get a Termite Inspection.
