Drywood Termite Facts

  • Typically between 1/8 and 3/16 of an inch in length. They can be light to dark brown, tan or white in color.
  • Enter the home seeking a place to set up a new colony through small cracks or carried in on infested wood such as old furniture, firewood or building materials.

Drywood termites are secretive insects and are difficult to detect. They live deep inside wood and, except during periods when they swarm or when repair work is being done on infested homes, they are seldom seen.
