A Royal Pain

September 19, 2018

Where there is one, there are thousands, maybe even millions. Termites may look like ants, even their mounds are very ant-like; but, they are more like cockroaches. Like roaches, this infestation should not be taken lightly.


Termites have colonies just like their fellow insects. Just like in any Monarchy, there are Kings and Queens, workers, and soldiers. The queen termite can live up to 30 years and lays thousands of eggs every 15 seconds.




There are over 2,000 different breeds of termites in the world. California is home to Drywood, Dampwood, and Subterranean termites.  Some common signs of a termite problem within your home can resemble water damage on any material made from wood in your home. However, you didn’t have a flood or water leak to your knowledge so what is the underlying reason for this damage? You guessed it, termites!


Termites eat both living and decaying wood as well as fungi that may be present on the wood. That means they are eating your house. So, what are you going to do to get rid of your termite problem?
