Termites are unsightly critters that can quickly chew through the wood of a home, causing major structural damage. Subterranean termites are amongst the most destructive type of termites and often build underground nests. They generally tunnel through wooden structures and create serious damage.
How Do Termites Enter the Home?
Drywood termites are another type of common termite found in Massachusetts and they enter the home on any floor or through the attic. These little critters infest the home in swarms and produce eggs to build their colonies. Drywood termites are difficult to prevent from entering the home because there are no limitations to their entry point.
