DRYWOOD TERMITES BUILD their colonies above ground in the wood of your home. They tend to choose roofs, eaves, walls and crawlspaces.
Unlike their cousins, the subterranean termites, drywoods don't need contact with moisture in the soil. Moisture comes from the wood they eat.
They are hard to find because they don't forage for food and stay within the colony. Discovery of their fecal pellets are the first signs of infestation.
Drywoods are difficult to remove because they stay above ground making perimeter and baiting systems ineffective.
