Subterranean termites are extremely destructive. First they build tunnels to wooden structures, and then they burrow into those structures to obtain food. Any wood or cellulose-containing material constitutes termite food, and given time to do so, they’ll eat until nothing is left but a shell. Termites avoid light and air, so they build their colonies where you’re not likely to stumble upon them.
Drywood termites live in the wood and need no ground contact. They need little moisture to survive and generally nest in warm areas of your structure such as an attic. Your only clue will be small (pin head size) pellets found at the bases of walls, doors, or windows.
Dampwood termites live in moist wood as their name implies. They need no ground contact. They are quite large as termites go but fortunately live in small colonies. Leaking roof gutters, bathrooms, masonry porch/stairs, stucco walls, etc are all areas of suspected infestations for dampwoods. The preferred method of control is to abate the moisture supply.
