Where do Termites Live

Posted in: Termites |

Termites build nests in wood or in the ground. Specifically wood and dry plant matter s the most abundant category of primary production on earth and termites are the primary group of animals adapted to feed on this non-nutritive matter.

In urban settings termites can build nests in wooden posts, steps, door frames, and trim embedded in an earth or concrete floor. These types of materials are especially susceptible to a termite infestation. Additionally wood siding, window frames, steps, and similar materials covered by earth or resting on the ground may also be attacked by termites.

Termites can enter your home from a variety of places. Wood posts and stairs embedded in concrete can also be paths of entry for termites. Wood in contact with the ground or with a high moisture content is vulnerable to attack. Logs, stumps, dead trees, leaky pipes, or gutters can provide favorable conditions for this insect.

So if you have these things in or near your house make sure you always keep an eye out for termites.

Colonies may be found in nests under the ground, in tree stumps, in hollow trees, in living trees or in conical mounds above the ground. Large termite colonies can extend for almost as much as a city block. They can thus attach many houses at the same time. When the colony becomes too large then what usually happens is that some termites leave to create other satellite colonies.
