Dampwood Termites create a series of chambers in wood, which are connected by tunnels with smooth walls, they are not as likely to be found in structures unless conditions exist which are conducive to these type of termites - such as cellulose debris near the structure or if there is earth to wood contact on the structure. Add moisture issues to any of these conditions and it exponentially increases the risk of dampwood termite activity.
There are essentially two different types of termites in the Pacific Northwest: Subterranean and Dampwood Termites.
Subterranean Termites are by far the most destructive termite species. They build distinctive tunnels, often referred to as mud tubes, to reach food sources. They are constantly using their scissor-like jaws to eat wood. These termites can cause great damage to a structure.
