What are the Different Kinds of Termite?
In most cases, there are three common termites which can infest a building. Mostly, the kinds of termites we see in North York or Vancouver are either dampwood termites, subterranean termites, or dry wood termites. Each of them is slightly different and may require a different removal tactic, but at Pesticon we’ve seen it all—no matter the kind of termite you have, our team of trained professionals will be able to develop a comprehensive and effective removal plan.
Let’s learn a little more about the different types of termites which are most likely to infest your home, from the least to most likely.
Dampwood termites, as their name implies, tend to seek out wood that contains a great deal of moisture. While in most cases this kind of termites aren’t likely to infest a man-made building—as these tend to be far too dry—in situations where plumbing systems have had persistent leaking problems, it is possible for them to crop up. Since the wood must have been damp for a long period of time, in most cases when this happens the homeowner wasn’t aware of the leaking problem.
Drywood termites, again as you would suspect, prefer to take up residence in wood which is dry. Naturally, this makes man-man structures far more susceptible. While these termites are commonly found in the wild nesting in dead, dry trees, the moisture-resistant treated wood found in most modern homes make an attractive abode for them.
The good news about drywood termites is that they generally have smaller colonies than the next type of termite we’re going to discuss, and drywood termites don’t spread quite as rapidly. This means that if you have a comprehensive inspection conducted by a pest control company like Pesticon, you might be able to catch them early enough before they do any lasting damage.
Subterranean termites are most likely to be the kind of termite infesting your home. While these termites live in soil primarily, they also like to venture out and build nests—and your home is an attractive place for them to do exactly that. If you’ve noticed tubes and nests made out of mud or dirt (they’re usually quite readily visible on the outside of your home, or inside in places like the garage), odds are these are the kind of pest you have. Among the common termite species, subterranean termites are the most common cause of home damage.
