You may never see a subterranean termite, but the easiest way to identify them is by the long mud tubes they build leading from the ground up the foundation of your home.

What kind of habitats does a eastern subterranean termite prefer?

As the name suggests, subterranean termites live in colonies deep underground. They prefer to live in dark, damp soil and climb up from underground to eat wood wherever they can find it. In the wild, subterranean termites eat trees, but on your property they’re probably more likely to invade your home. Most recognizable by the long mud tubes they create to shield themselves as they enter your home, before returning to their colonies which can be up to 20 feet underground.

What damage does a eastern subterranean termite cause?

Subterranean termites are known to be the most destructive of the termite species. Where drywood termites cause damage in the millions of dollars for American homeowners each year, subterranean termites create billions of dollars in damage. Their super sharp teeth can chew through wood very quickly so it takes no time at all for them to work their way through the structural beams that hold your house together. These don’t pose a direct threat to humans though they put our home’s security in jeopardy.
