Termites can be found in over 70 countries around the world. And they are showing up in MASSIVE numbers. As a matter of fact, they outnumber humans 10 to 1! There are few different types of termites; however, the termites we encounter most often in the St. Louis area are subterranean termites. As a prefix, “sub” is used to describe something underneath or below. And that’s exactly where these termites live — underground in massive colonies that can contain upwards of 2 million members in one single colony! They build mud tubes or tunnels to gain access to their food sources — and these guys mean business when it comes to their food. The literally eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. (Cold temps in winter may give us a temporary respite from ants but your heat keeps your walls warm too — keeping any termites inside your walls comfy cozy no matter the season.) Imagine nearly 2 million of these guys eating your home round the clock, every single day of the week. It’s easy to see how they can do so much damage, right?
