Dampwood Termites, Fort Lauderdale, FL Although dampwood termites are challenging to spot, our technicians can find and eliminate them.

Dampwood termites are larger than other termite species and tend to take up residence on properties where they have access to water-damaged wood. As their name suggests, dampwood termites feed on wet, soggy wood. Wood piles, fallen logs, stumps, branches, and lumber that are in direct contact with the ground all serve as ideal living spaces for these insects. They might also live in the wood framing of a home that has been damaged by a cracked drainpipe or a leaky roof. Unfortunately, it’s tough to know when these termites are present because they tend to stay hidden in areas that are rarely accessed.

The presence of dampwood termites is concerning because they can hollow out support beams, threatening the structural integrity of the building. Unlike other termite species, they do not create mud tubes, so they’re very difficult to spot. In fact, these termites use their own waste to cover up any entry points and remain as hidden as possible. An infestation of dampwood termites often indicates decay, so it’s important to address the insects along with the moisture problem to ensure that a home is safe for those who reside in it.

Although dampwood termites are challenging to spot, our technicians at AAA Assassin Enterprises Pest Control can spot and eliminate them. Termite treatment is one of our areas of expertise, and we have the knowledge and experience needed to address all types of termites found in and near Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
