Termites in Virginia
Termites are a fact of life in Virginia. The most common termite in Virginia by far is the Eastern Subterranean Termite. The Drywood Termite is included mostly for comparison. Drywood Termites are very uncommon in Virginia but have been found in a few locations. They nest usually in furniture and in wood that has no contact with soil. Buildings that are not properly protected from termites will eventually be damaged by termites. Wood and wood-framed buildings are especially susceptible to termites, but even buildings made of masonry and/or metal are subject to attack. Termites can still invade such buildings and damage items such as wooden floors or molding, cabinets and other built-in wooden furniture, as well as sheetrock walls, books, and other paper products stored in the building. Termite damage can be costly to repair, very costly in some cases, and repairs can be disruptive to day-to-day living.
