Where do Termites Live?
Across the nation, termites are found in every state except one (Alaska). Most species of termites prefer warmer climates but can easily adapt to the environment they find themselves in.
Termites will live, reproduce, and work in any environment that provides them with cellulose on which to feed. Some termites live in and need soil to survive, while others prefer to live in dry wood above the ground level. These wood-boring insects have been found living in walls, bathrooms, furniture, logs, and any other wood source found in or near your property in Virginia.
Where Do Termites Live in My Home?
- Both Eastern subterranean termites and formosan termites require regular contact with soil in order to survive.
- Both of these termites live and travel through mud tubes. These mud tubes allow termites to travel and search for food without exposure to the open air.
- These mud tubes can be around your foundation, windows, wall studs, and siding.
