Each year termites inflict more than 5 billion dollars worth of property damage.
Termites are like a stealth wood shredder. These tiny insects attack your home from their underground nests, gnawing into soft, wet, damaged wood before chewing into healthy wood. A termite colony of 60,000 insects can munch through one lineal foot of pine 2×4 every 120 days. But termite colonies can include hundreds of thousands to millions of hungry insects, causing considerable damage in a relatively short time. And since these insects never sleep, they’re crunching away at your foundation timbers 24/7 while you sleep blissfully unaware of the attack on your home.
