Habits

swarm of drywood termites

They form colonies of up to 2,500 members. Unlike subterranean termite species, these termite colonies do not have a worker caste.

The work is done by immature termites before they reach adulthood.

Habitat

Drywood termites infest dry wood, like that found in attic framings.

Threats

Drywood termites can infest structures and cause significant damage.

Prevention

These termites can be avoided by making sure firewood and scrap wood is stored at least 20 feet (6.1 m) from the home.

Because drywood termites form new colonies by gaining access to wood through small holes, seal all cracks and crevices in a structure.
