To control these unwanted pests, we provide an effective treatment plan, which may include:
Subterranean termites are extremely destructive. First
they build tunnels to wooden structures, and then they burrow into those structures to obtain food. Any wood or cellulose-containing material constitutes termite food, and given time to do so, they'll eat until nothing is left but a shell. Termites avoid light and air, so they build their colonies where you're not likely to stumble upon them.
On the off chance you do see them, remember that it's easy to confuse termites with ants. Fortunately, there are features that identify them.
