Subterranean Termites are the most common and economically important wood-destroying

organisms in the United States. Termites feed on materials that contain cellulose, primarily dead wood and wood by-products. Subterranean termites are closely associated with the soil habitat where they excavate a network of tunnels through the soil to reach water and food. Termites need moisture to survive.

Carpenter Bees: Common nesting sites include eaves, window trim, fascia boards, siding, wooden shakes, decks and outdoor furniture. Carpenter bees tunnel into the wood and lay their eggs. You will notice perfectly round and smooth holes in wood which most often make a 90 degree turn, making long interior tunnels, and with the grain of the wood to develop their larvae. The entrance hole is usually. Carpenter Bees prefer untreated wood or well-weathered wood. Look for piles of sawdust under the holes. You will often see them going in and out.

Carpenter Ants: Possible when moisture is common in the area. These ants set up colonies and galley in moist wood in trees, firewood, and fence posts, but they don't eat the wood. Inside, they build colonies in wall voids, foam insulation, eaves, crawl spaces behind siding, in attic insulation and many other places. They forage at night during summer, however they often invade structures in spring and fall looking for food sources. Many times you can find these ants swarming inside, especially around lights and windows.    Read More About Ants

 

Beetles: Powder Post Beetles- small beetles whose larvae feed in hard wood such as oak. Old House Borers whose larvae feed in soft wood timbers. Only the larvae feed on wood. They generally prefer wood in cool locations with moisture levels above 14 percent. Powder Post Beetles are the most common beetles infesting crawl spaces and outbuildings. Female beetles usually lay fewer than fifty eggs under wood splinters, in cracks, or in old exit holes. When the larvae change into adults, they chew round exit holes between 1/16 of an inch in diameter. The male and female emerge together and mate, and the female deposits her eggs. Though the females fly well and can lay eggs at new locations, they are most likely to lay their eggs on the wood from which they emerged. These beetles take 2 to 3 years to complete their development.
