Behavior & Habitat

Behavior & Habitats

Subterranean termites usually swarm in spring, after a considerable rain event, and on a bright, sunny, and calm (almost windless) day. The primary reproductives swarm to attempt at creating new colonies. Supplementary reproductives can only reproduce in their own colony and assist with population growth of the colony. Subterranean termites have a true worker caste (a terminal, sterile caste, whose only job is to assist in colony duties), while drywood termites do not. Subterranean termites live in colonies underground, but are able to reach food above ground by building tunnels called mud tubes. They are dependent on moisture for survival, unlike drywood termites which need very little moisture. Subterranean termites can invade homes through cracks in concrete and can attack most wooden objects in a structure. This means that concrete block structures and homes on slabs are not 100% safe from this pest.
