Subterranean termites live underground in colonies, or in moist areas above ground. They produce mud tube to reach food sources, and feed on products containing cellulose. Subterranean termites swarm in the spring and need contact with the soil to survive and live underground. They can build tunnels through cracks in concrete and are extremely destructive to wood, having the ability to collapse buildings entirely.
Subterranean Termite Prevention
Prevention of termites includes avoiding water accumulation near home foundations and preventing wood contact with soil and wood portions of structures, as well as reducing humidity in crawl spaces.
