Termites are very common in the Rio Grande Valley because of the warm and humid climate conditions. Many residents of the Valley think they don’t have termites because they are very tiny and hard to identify. These pests are hard to identify because they live in between the walls of your home and underground. Some of the signs of termite activity are small mounds or dirt tunnels. Termites build elaborate tunnel systems so that they can access food sources. The termites that build these tunnels are called subterranean termites. However, there are other types of termites called Drywood termites. These termites live within the wood they consume and oftentimes infest walls and furniture.
