Subterranean termites require moist conditions (such as
those found in homes with faulty plumbing or gutters) and
are found in every state except Alaska. Subterranean
termites nest in or near the soil – in fact, their colonies can
span up to a half acre. Their vast network of tunnels leads
them to even the tiniest of cracks and crevices in your
home, where they leave a pheromone scent trail that leads
others from their colony to the food source.
Drywood termites build their colonies above ground, in the walls,
floors, and contents of your home. They spread throughout the
neighborhood through swarming – endangering not only your home
but any home in the vicinity.
