drywood1Subterranean termites establish colonies in the soil, however, DRYWOOD TERMITES do not need contact with soil moisture nor any other water source. Accordingly, drywood termites establish colonies in wood above ground level. They can and do build colonies in structural wood, fence and utility posts, furniture, moldings, door and window frames, and so on.

Since colonies are usually constructed inside wood, finding these termites can be difficult during routine pest and dry-rot inspections. One of the best ways to identify an active infestation is the presence of drywood fecal pellets which are kicked out of the colony by workers and may accumulate below infestations. Fecal pellets have a distinct ridged shape and are about 1/25″ long (about the size of table salt). Subterranean termites do not kick out dry fecal pellets from their colonies and drywood termite fecal pellets are much larger than the boring dust particles of powderpost beetles.
