Subterranean termites cause billions of dollars of damage annually and are notorious for their destructive habits. Termites, aid in breaking down cellulose substances (cellulose is what wood is made of) in the environment, turning them into nutrient rich material. This behavior makes them a homeowners worst nightmare.
Subterranean termites are social insects forming large colonies that move together. As the name implies a subterranean termites home is underground, working and winding their way through the soil. It is important for homeowners to be aware of the differences in behavioral characteristics of subterranean termites versus other types of wood destroying organisms (other creatures can damage the structure). Familiarizing yourself with these traits can prove to be helpful in identifying signs of a possible infestation, as well as knowing what to look out for and where.
