What do dry wood termites look like?

Dry wood termites are small, dark-colored insects that can be difficult to see with the naked eye. They typically measure 1/8 to 3/16 of an inch long. Dry wood termites have a distinctive “snout” that distinguishes them from other termite species.

What do dry wood termites eat?

Dry wood termites feed on the cellulose in wood. They can damage furniture, flooring, and other wooden objects in your home.

What are the signs of a dry wood termite infestation?

The most common sign of a dry wood termite infestation is the presence of small, gritty pellets called “frass”. Frass is made up of the excrement and wings of the termites. You may also see evidence of the insects themselves, such as wings or swarming activity. They typically swarm in the springtime, and you may see them flying around your home or in your windows.

How Do you Know If You Have DryWood Termites?

If you think you may have dry wood termites, there are a few things you can look for:

Tiny holes in your wood furniture or walls

-Piles of Frass or wood shavings

-Swarms of small, dark-colored insects around your home

-Wood that sounds hollow when tapped

Why are they called dry wood termites?

Dry wood termites get their name from the fact that they typically live and feed in wood that is already dried out. They don’t need any contact with soil in order to survive.

What kind of damage do Drywood Termites do?

Dry wood termites can cause significant damage to your home. They can chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper. In some cases, they can even weaken the structural integrity of your home.

Why is this concerning for homeowners?

If you have a dry wood termite infestation, it can be difficult and expensive to get rid of them. They can also spread quickly, so it’s important to address the problem as soon as possible. If you’re concerned that you may have a dry wood termite infestation, please contact a pest control professional.

How Do You Treat Drywood Termites?

If you have a dry wood termite infestation, your pest control professional may recommend using a treatment called “fumigation”. Fumigation involves sealing your home in a tent and pumping it full of gas to kill the termites. It’s a very effective method, but it can also be expensive and time consuming. Additionally, Tent fumigation offers no protection from Drywood Termites in the future. That means Drywood Termites can re-infest your home tomorrow and continue to do damage!
