Termites (Reticulitermes flavipes)
Eastern Subterranean Termite is the most common 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.
