- Drywood termites are identifiable by their “swarmers”.
- Swarmers can be up to 12mm in length. Unlike the subterranean variety, Drywood termites have no worker caste.
- They are also commonly found in the woods and need very little moisture.
- Once mature, swarms of winged males and female reproductive termites are produced.
- They then leave the colony to form other colonies.
- While less common than Subterranean Termites, Drywoods do not need soil and can quickly spread from one room to another inflicting damage on the whole house.
