Signs that You May Have Termites

We have discussed termites before. This is because this single pest causes more damage to homes in Florida than any other. They cause billions of dollars in damage.

Here are some facts about termites:

  • The termite has been on Earth for over 100 million years.
  • There are three main groups of termite in Florida: the dry wood, damp wood, and subterranean termites.
  • On average, a termite lives 7-10 years.
  • A single colony can contain millions of termites.
  • There are 21 species of termite in Florida. 6 of them are invasive and most of the species are not considered pests because they do not feed on the type of building material humans use. – src:
