Drywood termites feed on sound wood without water damage. Drywood termites, compared to subterranean termites, live in small colonies. These termites feed slowly, but very efficiently. They leave hardly anything but a thin exterior shell behind when feeding on a piece of wood. Drywood termites live in Hawaii, parts of California, and throughout southern United States.
Eastern subterranean termites also live together in large colonies, but their colonies are not as extensive as Formosan termites. A single colony may have hundreds of thousands of members. Though their colonies are smaller, they cause more damage each year because they are more common and widespread. Eastern subterranean termites live throughout most of the United States, including Hawaii.
Formosan termites are subterranean termites that live in vast colonies (millions of members per colony). Due to their large colony size and aggressive feeding habits, they can cause a lot of damage in a short time (6 months). These termites create both underground and aerial nests. Formosan termites live in southeastern United States and Hawaii.
