While there are thousands of species of termites in the world, there are three main species that are prominent in South Carolina: Two species, Subterranean and Formosan, live underground and prefer to eat soft woods. The other, Drywood Termites, are true to their name and prefer to live in dry woods. While each species can severely damage wooden structures like homes, sheds, office buildings, garages, and more, Formosan termites are considered the most destructive.
Termites can eat through wood rather quickly and after they’re done with it, the wood that they leave behind is compromised and dangerous. If you have a termite infestation and it’s left untreated, you could experience significant damage to your ceilings, walls, foundation, and more.
