Wood Damaging Organisms
The most damaging insects that attack structural wood are termites. Their activity results in damage and control costs that exceed $1.5 billion per year nationally. Beetles are the next important group of insects that attack wood, while bees, wasps and ants are third in importance, depending on geographical location. Wood-inhabiting fungi are another group of organisms that occasionally cause problems.
The wood-destroying insects that must be reported include subterranean termites, powderpost beetles, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and drywood termites.
Insects are cold-blooded, so their body temperature very closely follows the temperature
to which they are exposed. Their development rate slows considerably in cold conditions.
During the winter, many insects become inactive and hibernate in a protected site so they
can survive the cold.
