Termites may be tiny insects however, they are incredibly destructive. They are social insects, unlike the earwig, so they are found in large colonies. It has been found that termites cause billions of dollars worth of documented damage every year. There are many different types of termites, however, one of the most aggressive types is the Formosan termite. They are a type of subterranean termite that can consume wood much faster than other termites, rapidly causing severe damage to structures. If you have a termite infestation you may see swarms of termites going to or from your structure. You may also notice live termites in window or door frames, along with the telltale mud tunnels that run along the sides of the structure or in the door frames. Your walls may also begin to bulge if there is a nest. If you have more questions regarding termites and their characteristics, we have provided our customers with detailed information on our website.
