What are Subterranean Termites?
Subterranean Termites: Subterranean Termites are found everywhere in the United States. These insects are common in soil, dead trees and wooden structures. Termites need wood for food and soil for moisture. There are more than ten species of subterranean termites that damage wooden structures. In the process of making nests and tunnels and ingesting food, they chew and eat wood, causing the destruction that makes termites economically important. Workers are usually light in color and do not have wings. Soldier termites serve to protect the colony from its enemies. Their heads are large, quite hard and feature larger mandibles than others. Swarmer termites are the ones most seen by homeowners. They have fully developed wings and eyes. The winged adults are usually much darker than other members of the colony. The colony usually swarms in spring and fall. These swarms are often the first indication that termites are present. They tend to emerge on warm sunny days when the humidity is high. Termites construct mud tubes that pass through usually hidden areas These tubes provide a moist environment and protect the termites from their enemies (ants). On occasion termites build free standing shelter tubes straight down from infested wood to the ground in areas such as crawlspaces under a house. This usually occurs when a colony has become well established and feeding has progressed some distance from the main shelter tunnel. Although Subterranean termites have preference of the type of wood they eat, there is no wood that is preventable to attack. The western subterranean termite (Reticulitermes hesperus) is the most destructive subterranean termite on the west coast.
