There are a number of environmental factors and building practices that create a termite-hotbed for Florida homes and structures. Sandy soil, higher water tables, slab-on-grade construction and commonly applied stucco walls that extend below-grade are just a few of the many contributing factors that are conducive to subterranean (Reticulitermes spp.), Formosan and dry-wood termite infestations.
While there are significant differences in the biology, habits and routes of introduction for these commonly infesting termite species, the one commonality is that they are innately skillful at going unnoticed in their endless quest for wood and cellulose-based materials. In north-Florida homes, an infestation may go unnoticed for months or years due to the fact that most damage is done behind walls and because of their discreet feeding habits.
