Drywood termites live in wood which has a fairly low moisture content. Unlike their subterranean cousins, drywood termites do not need any contact with the soil or any other moisture source. They get their needed moisture from the wood they live in.

Drywood termites though they often live in humid coastal areas, can be transported to other places in infested furniture, picture frames, decorative wooded pieces or wood used in construction.

Drywood termites live in smaller colonies, increase in population more slowly and do not build mud shelter tubes.  While their damage is rather localized, multiples colonies can cause considerable damage.
