Termites are social insects and live in colonies which are usually located in the ground or in wood. Termites feed on cellulose from wood and wood by-products, such as paper. In South Carolina, termites are usually divided into two groups based on the location of their colony: The Subterranean and the Drywood Termite.
A termite colony is composed of the Queen, King, winged reproductive swarmers, soldiers and workers. The worker termite is the most numerous in the colony and is the only caste member that can consume cellulose. While the homeowner seldom sees the worker termite, it is not uncommon to see the winged reproductives in the spring of the year. Swarming occurs during the daytime for the Eastern Subterranean Termite and typically follows a warm rain.
The Eastern Subterranean Termite is the most common and widely distributed termite in North America. These termites nest in the ground and construct mud tubes to connect their underground nest to their food source. Termites can enter buildings through cracks in concrete slabs, expansion joints, hollow block voids or bath trap areas. Termites also regularly construct mud tubes up the inside or outside of foundation walls to gain access to the structure.
