Termites eat the cellulose in wood and wood products. In Connecticut we mostly deal with the eastern subterranean termite. Because their home is he soil, when the;y break into the air they will build mud tubes to keep themselves protected from the sun and to keep the humidity level correct. When thy hit a rock or something solid like foundation they will build mud tubes giving us something to watch out for. It is always important to fix cracks in your foundation and wood of your home away form the ground. Keeping a dehumidifier in your crawlspace or basement can avoid termites and many other insects from making it their home.

The most wrongly identified insect are swarmers. The picture to the right show the difference. Some key points are, the termite swarmer will have wings twice the length of their very straight body. Whereas the carpenter ant swarmer will have a pinched waist and bent antennae. Both can come out in the hundreds, although termite swarms tend to be larger. If you have a itching to clean, make sure to save a few specimens. Out them in a zip lock bag or other sealable container.
