This species spends almost its entire lifecycle inside the wood on which it feeds, giving it plenty of destruction time. Found mostly in southern and southeastern coastal states, drywood termites will invade any wood that is dry.
Formosan termites are a type of subterranean termites, but are often classified separately due to their widespread destructive capabilities. Homeowners in southern states are most at risk of Formosan termite infestations.
