Subterranean termites are the most common species you’ll find in California, and they’re also the most destructive. They live underground but build mud tubes to reach food sources and shield themselves from open air. They’re capable of eating wood 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
Signs of Subterranean termites include:
Unlike subterranean termites, drywood termites do not require contact with the soil. They build their nests in wall supports, roofing materials, or other places inside of buildings. To do so, they create tunnels that cause major damage and weaken wooden beams.
Signs of Drywood termites include:
Beetles can infest and damage structural timber, decorative wood, and furniture. Beetle larvae do most of the damage to wood and once they reach adulthood they emerge through exit holes. The most common beetle that can re-infest a structure is powder post beetles.
Signs of these beetles include:
