(Length: Up to 1/2″) This termite species does not live in the ground, but lives inside wood. They are most likely to be found in humid, coastal areas. Their colonies are much smaller than subterranean termites, and infestations found in wood are usually confined to a small area. One sign of a drywood colony is the presence of fecal pellets, often found in piles like tiny stones. Drywood termites push out these pellets through small “kick-out” holes they make. The holes are later resealed.
