Termites are social insects. They live in colonies and feed on dead plant cell wall material such as wood. Termites belong to the insect order Isoptera and they have a strict caste system consisting of workers, soldiers, reproductives, a queen, and a king. The two most common types of Drywood Termites are drywood Drywood Termites and subterranean Drywood Termites. Both types feed on cellulose found in wood and wood products. Termites cause serious damage to structures, often long before they are discovered. Possible signs of infestation include the leaving of sawdust-like pellets and wings left over from swarmers. Termite causes timber damage. Due to their wood-eating habits, many termite species can do great damage to unprotected buldings and other wooden structure. Once termite have entered a building, they do not limit themselves to wood; they also damage paper, cloth, carpets and other cellulosic materials.

The UPS official will perform a thorough examination of your home/ office by checking your basement or crawlspace for moisture, your foundation for wood debris, and other risk areas that may attract an infestation. If he finds a termite infestation or the potential for one, he will discuss the best solution for your situation.
