TERMITES

The three principal types of termites in Florida are subterranean (nest in the soil), dampwood (infest damp wood), and drywood termites (infest dry wood). Subterranean termites are the most destructive and frequently encountered kind of termite found throughout the. Although they nest in soil, subterranean termites can attack structures by building tubes that connect their nest to wood in structures. Aerial nests can occur without a ground connection if all castes of the colony are present and moisture is available.

DRYWOOD TERMITES
Drywood termites generally live in un-decayed wood that has very low moisture content. Unlike subterranean termites, they can live without soil contact, which means that they are a serious threat to movable wooden objects such as furniture.
