Types of Termites
While there are more than 40 species of termites, there are actually three main types to look out for including Subterranean, Drywood, and Dampwood termites. Each one of these termites is drawn to wood, however the surrounding environment of the wood and the moisture level will affect which specific termite you may be dealing with.
What Attracts Termites?
- Subterranean termites come from the ground and prefer damp, moist, and decaying wood.
- Drywood termites typically make their home above ground in dry places like attics.
- Dampwood termites love their namesake and any decaying or damp wood found on the ground is their favorite place to nest.
What Kind of Damage Can Termites Cause?
Termites eat wood and may cause significant damage to your Charlotte home and most home owners insurance policies don't cover damages caused by termites.
Termites Have Been Known to Destroy:
- Wall studs
- Structural timbers
- Supports in the floors and ceiling
- Wood flooring
- Drywall paperboard
- Even furniture
Unfortunately, many people don’t learn they have a problem with termites until significant damage has been done.
How to Detect Termites in Your Home

- Swarms of flying termites
- Piles of wings on windowsills
- Bubbling paint
