Believe it or not – It’s estimated that for every human on earth there may be a 1000 lbs. of termites.
Termites have lived longer than the dinosaurs and continue to eat their way through all the wood they can find.
Termites are 24/7 bugs, which means they eat non-stop 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
They have hard, saw-toothed jaws that help them to eat lumber, wallpaper, plastics and fabric make of plant fibers.
Home inspectors commonly see termites’ works of art in crawlspaces… towers, tubes, castles.
Termites will build free-standing mud tubes in order to get to wood (photo).
Termites travel in humidified, mud-shelter tubes or galleries as protection from predators, sun-burn, dehydration and to maintain a high humidity environment which is essential for their survival.
