Subterranean Termites are one of the most destructive of nature’s forces in the Southeastern United States.

Termites breed fast and eat faster. It is the job of the Subterranean Termite worker to locate and recycle dead or damaged wood.

Problems arise when building timbers become this wood. Without protection, buildings get destroyed.

The best guess in Florida is that there are about 17 colonies of Subterranean Termites per acre, so whether or not Subterranean Termites become an issue is not if but when.

An infestation can be difficult to detect until damage occurs. Many times the first sign the initiated may see is a flight of flying insects-“swarmers”.

Subterranean termites form a network of interconnected feeding sites beneath or above the soil surface. A single colony of subterranean termites, may contain 100,000 – 1,000,000 termites foraging up to 150 feet in search of food. When subterranean termites search for food aboveground, they may enter a building through small cracks or joints in the foundation, or by building sheltered mud tubes along the foundation wall. These tubes are highways connecting the underground termite population with aboveground food sources. Because termites consume cellulose, the main structural components of plant cells, any wood material in a house is a potential food source, but they may also damage non-wood material in search of food.
