Drywood Termite Behavior
Soldiers are about 3/8-inch long and in their reproductive stage, grow to about ½ inch in length. They develop four wings that are longer than the body of the termite in the winged stage. The kings and queens are pale brown and they are responsible for reproduction. The soldiers are pale with large brown heads and no wings. Their job is to guard the colony from ant invasions. Nymphs are immature termites.
Unlike subterranean termites, this type does not need contact with soil and is generally found in wood framing in attics. Each pair of winged reproductive flies to a new area to establish a colony in dry wood. They can enter through very small holes and quickly establish colonies, which can grow to include up to 2,500 termites. Effective termite preventive measures and treatment are essential to prevent damage and eliminate an infestation. We provide drywood termite identification and drywood termites treatment.
