Termites are structural pests that are a threat to any structure that is made of wood. If left untreated, termites can and do destroy entire buildings. Their food source can be your home, deck, cabinetry, lawn furniture, etc. Termite species fall into three categories: dry wood, damp wood, and subterranean termites. Dry wood and damp wood termites live in and feed on wood, while subterranean termites live underground and feed on wood. Each year, more homes are damaged by termites than by flood or fire.
All termites eat wood, paper and other fibrous materials and they are constantly foraging for food. In nature, they live and nurse their larvae underground and in damp, rotting wood. They can be found in forests, tree stumps, stored fire wood, bushes, tree roots and dying parts of living trees. Subterranean termites stay underground and access your home from tunnels around its foundation. Termites are fond of feeding on cabinets, floors, ceilings, yard furniture, window sills, door jams, posts, beams and siding of modern homes. Damage from termites can sometimes go undetected until considerable damage takes place. So, you may have had termites for some time without even knowing it.
