Termites feed on dead trees and plants, with wood making up the bulk of their diet. Dampwood termites tend to stay close to the ground, whereas drywood termites are fine with attics since their taste buds prefer moisture-free wood. To guard against termites, eliminate excess moisture – repair leaky faucets, clean gutters and downspouts, eliminate standing water – and remove food sources, such as stacked firewood. One of the earliest signs of termites is what’s known as “mud tubes” on walls. For more information, check out our Termites page.
