The Bug Blog: Termites

Termites date back more than 120 million years ago to the time of the dinosaurs. They are generally known as “silent destroyers” because they can chew through wood, flooring, and even wallpaper without being detected.





These pests typically will begin attempting to start their new colonies in a home around early spring. Every year, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage which is one of the many reasons why staying vigilant about termite control, and extermination is so important.
