Drywood Termites

Drywood Termite

  • Drywood termites are identifiable by their “swarmers”.
  • Swarmers can be up to 12mm in length. Unlike the subterranean variety, Drywood termites have no worker caste.
  • They are also commonly found in the woods and need very little moisture.
  • Once mature, swarms of winged males and female reproductive termites are produced.
  • They then leave the colony to form other colonies.
  • While less common than Subterranean Termites, Drywoods do not need soil and can quickly spread from one room to another inflicting damage on the whole house.
