Collection: Pests - Drywood Termites

Drywood Termites

As the name implies, Drywood Termites feast off dry wood.  That means wood used to construct your house as well as furniture, old instruments, antiques, etc. If you have Drywood Termites, it will be obvious by the piles of ‘sawdust’ you see outside of the wood.  But these piles of ‘sawdust’ aren’t sawdust at all – they are the fecal pellets of the termites boring into your wood.  They don’t like to live with their mess, so they form what are called ‘kick-out’ holes to push these fecal pellets out.  Whatever wood the termites are eating and destroying will be the same color of the fecal pellets
