Asian Subterranean Termite in Biscayne Park
Asian subterranean termites have become a persistent problem in the state of Florida. These termites find a congenial environment to grow and thrive in tropical climate of Florida. The nature of damage caused by Asian subterranean termites and treatment alternatives are discussed below:
Nature of Damage Caused
Asian Subterranean termites cause severe damage to your house. Their prime food source is cellulose which they derive from wood and plant tissues. These termites start infesting the wooden items like furniture, flooring, beams, and even foundation in your house. They can also start to disintegrate concrete over time. Asian subterranean termites can also damage paper, fiberboard, and various other types of fabrics obtained from cotton and other plants. These termites can damage the foundation of your house and compromise its structural integrity severely. This makes it very dangerous for the residents. They make tunnels and enter the foundation of your house through cracks, conduits, etc. When they enter the foundation, they start feeding on the different wooden items. They are voracious consumers of wood and consume it along the grain, eating the softwood. Wood contains high levels of cellulose which attracts Asian subterranean termites. They will consume other sources of cellulose and sometimes even burrow and excavate non-cellulose materials in their search for food.
These Asian subterranean termites are known to cause damages worth up to $5 billion in the US each year. Damages caused due to termite infestation are generally not covered by the insurance service providers and hence these expenses have to be met by house owners on their own. Asian subterranean termites are thriving in Florida and it is expected that nearly half of all the buildings will be infested by them by 2040.

Worried About Termite Damage? You Should be.
Usually you don’t see termites or the damages they cause until it’s too late. In fact, the annual cost of termite damage to buildings in the US is more than $5 billion- greater than that of fires, hurricanes and tornadoes combined.
