Dampwood Termites

As their name suggests dampwood termites only infest extremely damp or wet timber. Plumbing leaks, faulty gutters, broken drains, or other excessive moisture conditions will allow these termites to exist. These termites are 1″ in length and are much larger than drywood termites and subterranean termites.

Dampwood termites can be eliminated by removing the water source. Identifying and correcting the conducive conditions such as a leak or faulty drainage will alleviate the problem by eliminating the wet timber.
