Termites are a serious threat to properties, especially in the southeast. Queens can produce thousands of termite eggs per day, and termites have a relentless appetite for the structural wood in your home. Unfortunately, termite damage is typically not covered by commerical insurance — so you’ll want to stay two steps ahead of termite invasions. Properties are at risk from multiple types of termites:
- Subterranean termites live underground and infiltrate homes through a series of tunnels. They feed on the cellulose components of your home, which are primarily wood and by-products of wood. Subterranean termites are very common in southern states and have a proclivity toward warmer climates, but they have been found in every state except Alaska.
- Drywood termites do not need contact with the soil like subterranean termites. Drywood termites build colonies in structural wood; control of drywoods can be more challenging because their colonies are not confined to the soil.
- Formosan termites are sometimes referred to as “super termites” because of their size, destructive habits and size of the colonies. Colonies can number over 1 million!
