Termites cause billions of dollars in damage to structures each year. Rarely is the damage covered by homeowners insurance. Termites are the most common of the wood destroying pests that we encounter. As seen by the map below, we live in the most termite-infested region of the United States.
Subterranean Termites are not usually seen as they predominately tunnel underground working non-stop to find food. Termites naturally recycle cellulose material; unfortunately they do not differentiate between a rotting branch, and the wood in your home. Without termite protection, the damage they cause can be severe.
The Eastern Subterranean termite is the most common and most widely distributed termite in North America. A mature colony of Eastern Subterranean termites can range from a low of 60,000 to a high of one million workers, with an average of 300,000.
In addition to our native Eastern Subterranean Termites, Formosan Termites have become a major problem in the Lowcountry. Originally from mainland China, Formosans have been established in the continental U.S. for only about 50 years. The Formosan Termite is one of the world’s most aggressive species and they are more vigorous and aggressive than the native termites. A major reason for the destruction is the larger sizes of the average colony. In fact, the average colony can be anywhere from 350,000 to two million workers.
