Subterranean and drywood termites are among the worst causes of damage to wood frame homes. Infestations can grow quickly with unsuspecting homeowners oblivious to the silent destruction going on around them. These pests hollow out the structural integrity of wooden framing members like wall studs, joists, rafters, and sheathing, leaving a shell that is vulnerable to collapse. There are hundreds of species of termite that are pests and two major types that are common pests in the Western United States.
Subterranean and drywood termites
Subterranean termites require soil and significant amounts of moisture for survival. This type of termite makes mud tunnels from the soil into wooden structures to avoid dehydration and predators. They can feed on wood in houses and furniture, but they also eat leaf litter, soil, and dung. They are more common in the wetter Northwest states, although they do occur in California as well. Subterranean termites swarm during daylight hours and can be recognized when they die after mating by having wings that stay attached to their bodies.
Drywood termites can survive on minimal moisture and do not need soil. Drywood termites live inside the wood they are consuming and they are especially fond of eating wood species that are used in house construction, like Douglas fir. These termites swarm at night during their mating season, and when they die after mating, their wings become detached from their bodies. Drywood termites have become rampant in parts of Southern California like Los Angeles County.
