Drywood termites are found in southern coastal states. They live in wood with low moisture content and do not require soil contact. They will infest structures by swarming at night. Fecal pellets are an indication of infestation. Drywood termites can be imported from southern areas of North America hiding in furniture and other wooden items.
Drywood termites do not require any contact with the soil. They live in small colonies in dry wood.The drywood termite larvae are translucent white in appearance and are approximately 1/32" long.
The drywood termite feeds on wood in houses, utility poles, furniture and dying trees.
They infest dry timber, e.g. structural timbers, and expand their nests by eating through timber in all directions; eventually leaving just a hollow, yet otherwise normal appearing piece of timber.
