What types of termites are on Long Island?

This is a simple answer. Although there are about 40 different termite species across the United States, and thousands worldwide, here in Long Island there’s one main culprit.

It’s the subterranean termite, which lives underground most of the year and pops up in late March through June for our “termite season.”

Termites on Long Island

The Subterranean Termite is the most common type of termite in North America, and they especially love it here in Long Island.

Subterranean Termites live underground for most of the year, then emerge when the weather gets pleasant in late March through June. Subterranean termites can’t stand heat or cold, which is why you don’t see them as much during other parts of the year.

What Kind of Termite Do I Have?

It is very rare to see termites whatsoever unless you notice a swarm flying by. This makes it especially difficult to identify which type of termite you may be dealing with. A professional termite control company can identify the species of termite you are dealing with and work to determine the best form of termite control for that species.
