Drywood termites infest dry wood, like that found in attic framings.

Drywood termites can infest structures and cause significant damage.

Drywood Termites can be found in CA, AZ, FL, AL, GA, LA, MS, SC, TX, VA

Drywood termites can be avoided by making sure firewood and scrap wood is stored at least 20 feet from the home. Because drywood termites form new colonies by gaining access to wood through small holes, seal all cracks and crevices in a structure.
