What is are Termites?
In the US there are three main types of termites you may encounter. The Subterranean, Drywood and Formosan.
The Subterranean termite varies in size depending on its caste. Workers will measure one-eighth to three-eighths of an inch in length. Soldiers are longer than workers but have larger heads and powerful mandibles. Workers are cream-colored and pale whereas soldiers are light colored, but brown heads. Supplementary reproductives are same in color as the workers and soldiers, but primary reproductives are brown or black. There are three types of subterranean termites: workers, soldiers and swarmers. Each will have specific jobs within the colony they are in.
The Drywood termite will also vary in size
