Monday, 19. May 2014 5:39

Termites are eusocial insects that feed on dead plant material such as wood, leaf litter, soil, or animal dung. These are found in tropical and sub-tropical area; so these regions need more termite killer projects and termite treatment procedures. Termite colonies can mature from hundreds to several million individuals. The activity level of a termite and active species vary from region to region.

Some well-known species of termites are damp wood, dry wood, Formosan and subterranean termites. Each of them is found in specific regions of the United States of America. This is because they thrive in regions that offer the right balance of moisture such as dry or damp and appropriate temperature such as above or below freezing point for colonies to thrive. Following is the classification of termites according to the regions where they thrive in USA to aid in your termite control plan.

    Dry wood termites characteristically cannot survive below freezing point so they live in southern states and adjoining areas. These areas do not reach freezing temperatures during the winter.
    Subterranean termites sustain a wider range of temperatures. So they are found every state except Alaska.
    Formosan termites are also prevalent in the southern United States; provinces include Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas.
    Damp wood termites are located in Southwest parts on the Pacific coast, and also in central and southern Florida. These termites do not infest building structures.
