Soft Rot Fungi

Knoxville Pest Control You Can Rely on

Soft rot fungi are known for appearing in wood that has high water and nitrogen content. It looks like brown rot and also degrades the cellulose and hemicelluloses of wood content. To break down the wood, they secrete cellulase, a substance that forms cavities inside the wood. They typically appear in areas that are too hot, cold, or wet for brown and white rot to form.

Soft rot fungi are typically found in:

  • Window frames
  • Floorboards
  • Fence posts
  • Areas where wood contacts soil
  • Areas where wood contacts the outdoors
