Termites. They’ve inhabited the planet for over 50 million years. And while they play a crucial role in the ecosystem, they can be incredibly destructive to buildings.
Termites feast on dead plant material, most commonly wood, a staple in home construction in most parts of the world including Florida. It’s been calculated that termites cause up to $5 billion in damage every year.
Termites invade buildings because the wood frames and other cellulose based fixtures are a feast for the entire colony. They feed non-stop and can go unnoticed in a home for years, chewing and destroying, before damage is evident. Termites are assured to cause sizeable, sometimes irreparable damage to a property if they are not eliminated.
