Eastern Subterranean Termite


Serving the Greater Boston Area

Reticulitermes flavipes, the eastern subterranean termite is the most common termite found in North America. These are wood destroying insects that  feed on cellulose material such as the structural wood in buildings, wooden fixtures, paper, books, and cotton. A mature colony can range from 20,000 workers to as high as 5 million workers and the primary queen of the colony lays 5,000 to 10,000 eggs per day. A colony of termites can consume up to 12 pounds of wood per year. They live underground and can go undetected for years, eating your building from the ground up.
