Subterranean Termite Information

Most subterranean termite colonies average about 300,000 workers, though some species can support an average of a million workers.  The main job of each of these workers is to find food.  Their main food source? Wood.  Subterranean termites prefer to be close to soil sources to enable them to build the structures for their colonies.  When built inside the walls of buildings, these colonies can actually cause walls to swell from the size of the termite structures.

Drywood Termite Information

Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites do not need a means of accessing soil.  Rather than building mud-based structures, drywood termites build large tunnels or galleries within the grains of the wood in the various timbers they infest, thereby weakening the structures over time.  Though their colonies are not as large as some subterranean termite colonies, there are often multiple colonies within the same wood structure. There are roughly 400 types of species of drywood termites around the world, three of which are most common in Central FL – the powderpost or “furniture termite,” the eastern drywood termite, and the southeastern drywood termite.  

The damage termites can cause to homes and businesses is often not covered by homeowners insurance. Because colony growth can take years for some species of termites, it is crucial that you have an ongoing Prevention and Treatment plan established.  Horizon Pest services offers customizable and affordable Termite Control options for your home and business.
