Termite season is upon us. As the weather warms our greatest insect adversary wakes up and sends out scouts to start looking for a new meal.
Termites, like many other insects, will take the first meal of opportunity, but that doesn’t mean that they will settle for said easy pickings if something better is available. The Formosan Termite is widely considered to be the most populous, aggressive, and damaging of the termite family.
The average colony of Formosan Termites may contain ten times the population of their American cousins. That means a well-established colony can contain millions of termites.
Originally from Southeast Asia, the Formosan Termite made its way to America in the 1960s.
They are considered to be the most destructive termite family due to the size of their colonies. Their numbers mean they are constantly expanding. Instead of being content to infest one structure, their colonies will grow to encompass everything in the area. According to specialists, once they are in an area they can never be fully eradicated.
They can only be contained.
This is why it is imperative that you contact your Panama City pest control specialists at the first sign of a termite infestation. There are several things to observe with termites:
