These are Termites found at a local school during an inspection. Unfortunately damage had already been done.  Termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year and unfortunately reacting after Termites are found can be a costly mistake. This is why it is so important to have a Termite inspection once a year.

Subterranean Termites are the most destructive insect in the world. In the United States they do billions of dollars in damage. In nature Termites serve as housekeepers of the desert, consuming and breaking down dead decaying wood. In the urban environment, termites feed on any cellulose material with in a business including lumber, drywall paper, cardboard, furniture, or anything made from wood. Buildings are an ideal food source for termites. In addition, many buildings utilize large irrigation systems serve as a much needed moisture source for termites.

Termite Control Service and Termite Protection

In the commercial setting termites present two problems for business owners. The first, is the physical damage that termites can do to the structure. The second, is the cosmetic damage that can be seen by clients or worse the perception of poor facilities maintenance. Typical evidence of termite activity is identified by the mud shelter tubes that termites build. These tubes are used as roadways into the structure for termites to forage on the wood and return to the soil where they live. Shelter tubes typically can be found on the exterior stem wall, interior drywall, or drop down from the ceiling.
