Termites are a serious threat to the safety of any home, responsible for an average of 1 billion dollars worth in United States property damages. Called “the silent destroyer” for their lack of immediate signs of damage, the most common types of termites include Dampwood, Drywood, Formosan, and Subterranean termites. While the Dampwood and Drywood varieties reside solely in the wood that suits their name, the Formosan and Subterranean termites, thought to be more aggressive and dangerous, make their nests in the soil beneath or near your home, building elaborate tunnels and mud tubes in search of food.
These pests, which swarm in the spring in search of a food source to set up a new colony, are identifiable in the home by piles of feral pellets, hollow wood, mud tubes, discarded wings, cracked or bubbling paint, sagging or buckling walls, or a cracking floor. With colony numbers varying from the tens to hundreds of thousands, these tiny insects can devour 12.9 pounds of your walls, floors, insulation, and furniture per year, which, as the years go on, can lead to a frightfully unsound structure.
