Types Of Termite That Could be In Your Home
Eastern Subterranean Termites typically create their homes in mud and dirt and then use tunnels they create to go above ground for their food sources.
Drywood Termites are the common pests that make their way into your home, from the walls to the furnishings. They can gain entry through small openings, during renovation processes, or bringing in infested furnishings.
Dangers of Termite Infestation
It goes without saying that termites cause serious structural damage. Termites can chew through furnishings, wood floors, interior items, and house foundation. Not only does this cause trouble for a home’s residents but may also affect the resale value of your home.

As a colony matures, it may release winged males and females – or “swarmers.” If they survive, swarmers will settle, shed their wings and form a new colony.
