A subterranean termite lives in the soil where they need moisture to live. These invasive and destructive creatures build mud tubes (which are literally that: tubes of mud) which are their form of transportation and protection from weather and predators. Using mud tubes, they can even get through cracks in concrete to get where they are trying to go: in your home to eat wood.
Similar to drywood termite swarming season in September, you may see subterranean termites out and about come Spring time. They’ll likely swarm during warm days following a rain. Why? They’re looking for a mate to reproduce and create their own colony.
Subterranean termites themselves can be difficult to see because they hide within wood – so seeing signs of their presence, including mud tubes and wood damage, is a form of detection. If you see the winged termites during mating season – in your home – you should definitely have a thorough inspection done.
