Shape and size:
Dampwood termites are generally larger than subterranean termites. The swarmers can grow up to 1-inch in body length. Termites are often confused with ants. Unlike ants, which have antennae that are bent at a 90-degree angle, termite antennae are straight. Their wings are roughly the same length as their bodies.
Signs of a Dampwood Termite infestation:
Dampwood termites infest wood with high moisture content. Their presence is usually marked by a series of chambers or galleries connected by tunnels. The appearance of wood damaged by this group of termites can be varied but they always eat across the grain.
