dry wood termite - drywood termites - US Pest Protection Nashville TN

Drywood termites are common in our neck of the woods and are generally larger bodied than Subterranean Termites. They don’t feed on soil or moisture and can survive solely on hard wood materials, including dead trees, structural wood pillars and hardwood floors. It can be very difficult to identify drywood termites because of their traditionally small colony size and low number of swarming alates throughout the year (fewer than 60).

You can protect your family against these pests by repairing exterior wood damage, regularly treating wood areas with protectant and placing insect screens throughout your home.
