Formosan Termites

They are typically located in places with warm climates. It can consume a vast amount of wood in a short amount of time. Because of their known ability, they have earned the nickname “super termite”

They don’t just stick to wood. The Formosan have been known to eat wood, plaster, plastic, and even metal.

Subterranean Termites

Their kind is known to have a very successful working order. They are very systematic, especially during springtime when they send out swarmers to reproduce. Their queen can lay up to thousands of eggs in a day, and these eggs hatch into destructive termites that can destroy a whole building in a short period.

Like other types, they also live in colonies underground and spend their time foraging. Each colony is consists of almost two million individuals. They mostly feed on wood and cellulose material.


Drywood Termites

As their name suggests, they live in dry woods and can be found from wooden rocking chairs, bookshelves, and hardwood flooring. Their colonies are relatively small in comparison to subterranean. In a single dwelling, it can have multiple colonies, and instead of living in mud tubes, they live in the wood itself and will tunnel along the grains of the wood which makes them more dangerous.

This termite work in teams. The male and female pair will work their way into the wood chosen for nest. Then they will excavate a chamber behind the opening which is sealed with a plug of brown cement and once done, the queen will start laying eggs.
