Scientific Name: Isoptera
Termites are often called the “silent destroyer” because they may be secretly hiding and thriving in your home or yard without any immediate signs of damage. All termites consume cellulose-based plant materials. Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide cellulose food for termite infestation.
Termites are one of the most costly pests. They are known to cause billions of dollars and more worth of damage each year. Their intricate way of living allows termites to silently devour the structural integrity of a building, allowing them to completely destroy a home in just two years if left undetected.
