Types of Termites in the Pacific Northwest
Here in the Pacific Northwest, there are two common types of termites we commonly see. Those are subterranean termites and drywood termites.
- Subterranean termites: generally enter homes from the ground. They prefer cool, damp, and quiet environments. You can identify subterranean termites by locating mud tubes that meander up your interior walls.
- Drywood termites: live inside of walls and often create exit tunnels to push out waste. You can identify drywood termites by seeing piles of termite droppings near floorboards and windowsills.
Most homes and buildings make easy targets for termite infestations. Colonies can enter homes through tiny cracks and crevices in the foundations and walls. Termites can also access homes by tunneling through the soil beneath them and squeezing through the cracks and holes in cinder blocks and cement. The only way to keep these persistent insects out is through barriers and other prevention methods.
Termite Removal Process
Termite queens can lay tens of thousands of eggs each day so a small colony can quickly become a severe problem. If you’re home or business is infested with termites, property damage is highly likely unless their population is exterminated quickly. When you work with our termite exterminators you can expect the following:
- A detailed inspection of your home or business
- A customized termite treatment program based on the inspection
- Utilizing Integrated Pest Management practices to removal and prevent termites
- Scheduling further inspections to ensure your termite extermination worked
- Keeping you updated with service reports

Once termites have entered your home, they’ll begin damaging the wooden framework immediately. This damage is a result of their feeding habits. Termites digest an organic compound called cellulose that gives wood its structure. When the cellulose is removed, the wood becomes hollow and weak. A sizable termite colony can consume several pounds of structural timber in a matter of days, leading to very expensive repairs.
Termite problems should be handled quickly to avoid further damage. If you suspect that your home or business is infested with termites, contact Eden Advanced Pest Technologies for a free quote.
