Damage Caused by Asian Subterranean Termites
The Asian subterranean termites have been wreaking havoc in Florida for many years now. This invasive termite species which has its origins in south-east Asia has found an ideal breeding ground in the warm and tropical climate of Florida. The problem of termite infestation is greater in South Florida. The rate at which the Asian subterranean termites are expanding across Florida, it is estimated that nearly 50% of all the buildings in the state will be affected by them by 2040.
This termite species depends on cellulose as their primary food source. They start feeding on anything which provides the source of cellulose. This is why the Asian subterranean termites have a special liking for wood which has high levels of cellulose. They can quickly infest and start damaging wooden flooring, ceiling, furniture, trees, etc. These termites also eat the heartwood of trees and weaken them. They have taken a liking to the native tree species in Florida and are known to attack slash pines particularly. According to studies, the Asian subterranean termites have killed 12% of residential trees and 3% trees in city parks over the last 5 years. The study also found that another 46% of residential trees were infested by them which could cause lethal damage to the trees. The problem of infestation by these termites has been on the rise with nearly 600,000 houses in the US getting infested every year. Most insurance providers do not cover damages caused by termite infestation and hence the house owners have to pay for damage restoration from their pocket.

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.
How The Sentricon® System Works
The Sentricon System starts protecting your property the minute it is installed. Termites are attracted to the bait and once consumed, lose the ability to eat, breed and survive. The end result is the complete elimination of the colony, including the queen!

Asian, Formosan and Eastern Subterranean Termites.
