About Termites


Subterranean termites can be extremely destructive. They can tunnel to wooden structures (like your home), into which they burrow to obtain food. Termites all share a virtually insatiable appetite for wood and other cellulose-containing materials. Given enough time, they can cause extensive damage and will feed on the wood until nothing is left but a shell.

The Eastern Subterranean termite is the most common and most widely-distributed termite in North America. While Eastern Subterranean termite colonies are not the largest termite colonies you can find, there will often be more than one of them working in a single building. Signs of Eastern Subterranean termites include dirt-colored tubes built to serve as protected paths from the earth to the wood the termites are feeding on, and the translucent wings shed by the kings and queens during swarming. Swarming usually occurs in the spring, but other, smaller swarms can occur throughout the summer and fall.

Quick Termite Facts

  • An average Eastern Sub termite colony can consume 5 grams of wood per day, the equivalent of 2 1/3 linear feet of a 2’x4’ pine board annually.
  • Eastern Sub termites can enter buildings through cracks less than 1/16“ wide.
  • Eastern Sub termites will often build mud tubes for travel between their colonies and their food sources.
