Knowing you are covered
Subterranean termites are the most destructive insect pests of wood in the United States. They cause billions of dollars in damage each year and have a negative impact on a family’s home.
Considered one of the most aggressive and economically devastating termite species in the country, the Formosan subterranean termites were introduced to the United States in 1956.
Termites are social insects that form colonies. Drywood termites will live in sound dry wood that is located above the ground. These termites get the moisture that they need from the wood that they digest.
