Where Do Termites Live?

Termite Control Surprise AZEvery species of termite have different requirements as far as temperature, humidity, etc. for survival. As such they each have developed their own sets of habits and therefore live in different places or habitats. For instance, drywood termites usually live in the wood that they are eating and will infest your furniture and the walls of your house when doing so. Dampwood termites, as their name suggests, usually inhabit damp and decaying wood. Both drywoods and dampwoods are more prevalent in the Southern areas of the country, while the subterranean termites can be found throughout the U.S., including right here in Surprise AZ. Subterraneans live in what can sometimes be enormous colonies that are located under ground. Their elaborate tunnel systems are extended out of the ground and onto your home via mud shelter tubes that help to maintain the required temperature and humidity. They could not survive out of the nest without these shelter tubes.
