The termite threat
Termites are a fact of life in the southeast. These wood destroying insects cause billions (yes, BILLIONS) of dollars in property damage each year. No structure, not even brick or concrete slab construction, is immune to their insidious appetite. Termite infestation is often difficult to detect. In the early stages of an infestation, termites keep their wood-destroying activity hidden beneath flooring and behind walls, siding and wood trim. They will destroy wooden structures leaving only the outer surface intact. Mud tunnels, holes in wood, and warped doors and floors are possible indications of termites in your home or business and should be tended to immediately to avoid severe termite damage.
The first visible sign of termites may be a "swarm" appearing in the spring. That may just be the tip of the iceberg. Worker termites are active 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, foraging for new food sources (wood) to nourish the entire colony-- the soldiers, the reproductives, the young and, of course, the queen. To eliminate the termite colony, you must kill the queen.
