Subterranean Termites Versus Drywood Termites

When performing a termite inspection, we first determine what kind of termites are infesting your home – that way we know what methods to use to control them. Here in Florida, we typically see Subterranean termites and Drywood termites. Both species' queens lay thousands of eggs every day—in fact, Subterranean termites lay eggs about every 15 seconds! This is why it's imperative to call us as soon as you believe you have termites. We use different treatment methods for different termites because they infest homes in different ways. When either pest invades, we have a solution for you!

Sentricon® for Subterranean Termites 

Subterranean termites will nest below ground and require contact with soil and plenty of moisture. They're dark brown in color and about a half-inch long. When we identify Subterranean termites, our exterminators utilize our Sentricon Colony Elimination System® with Always Active™ baiting technology to eliminate them.

Structural Fumigation for Drywood Termites

Drywood termites will nest above ground and often invade your walls and roof. They are usually a pale brown color, and "soldier" drywood termites are about three-eights of an inch long. When identifying Drywood termites, we turn to spot treatments and structural fumigation. Unlike subterranean termites, termite baiting stations will not prevent drywoods from invading your walls and roof. To make matters worse, they often remain hidden within the wood on which they feed, so they are hard to detect. Structural Fumigation (also known as "tenting") is the most effective way of eradicating drywood termites, powderpost beetles, and even bed bugs from your home. Depending on the extent of the infestation, tenting can sometimes be avoided with spot treatments of insecticides, but the only way to ensure that no termite is left behind is to fumigate your home.

How does our fumigation work?

1. Your home is carefully prepared and tented. Think of the tent as a balloon; it keeps the gas in so the termites die.

2. The tent is filled with fumigant. The precise amount of fumigant makes its way throughout your home, seeking out every termite no matter where it’s hiding.

3. Every single termite dies. No more invaders hiding in your walls, eating away at your home

4. The tent is vented and your home is termite-free. The gas completely exits your home and does not leave behind surface residue or living termites.

Fumigation Versus Other Termite Treatment Options

When it comes to getting rid of dry wood termites, you have a choice. This chart will help you decide which termite treatment is best for you and your home.


  • Kills all termites, even hidden or inaccessible colonies
  • One treatment eliminates 100% of termites
  • No drilling necessary
  • Residents must prepare their home and leave it for a few days
  • Costs more than most spot treatments, requires leaving home for a few days

Spot Treatments

  • Colonies must be found to be treated
  • Multiple treatments may be necessary if all termites are not eliminated
  • Requires drilling
  • Pest professionals must inspect the home, and residents may have to leave until the chemical dries
  • Cost per treatment is less than fumigation, but multiple services are often needed

Heat Treatment

  • Unlikely to kill all termites throughout the home
  • Drywall, insulation, concrete, and tile take longer to heat and may affect how well the treatment works
  • No drilling necessary
  • Many common household items are heat-sensitive and must be removed or protected — residents may have to leave their home for one day
  • Cost is equivalent to fumigation
