Native Eastern Subterranean
They are 10 millimeters in length, with dark brownish-black bodies. Colonies are most often located in the ground. They can eat up to five grams of spring wood per day. Chemical treatments and baiting systems work best to eliminate termites.
Southeastern Drywood Termites
They are 11 to 12 millimeters long, with pale yellowish brown to pale reddish brown bodies. Southeastern drywood termites fly to structures and infest exposed wood, such as door frames and siding, later infesting attics. Fumigation and direct wood treatment are the most effective methods of control.
