Eastern Subterranean Termite
Pest Solutions of Tampa Bay
Eastern subterranean termites live in colonies composed of workers, soldiers, reproductives, and supplemental reproductives. During the spring, the reproductives swarm and leave the colony. The reproductives are black and have a thick waist. The antennae are straight and both pairs of wings are the same length. Subterranean termites feed on wood, but nest in the soil. They construct mud tubes from their nests to the wood in structures.
