Damage Caused by Asian Subterranean Termites
Asian subterranean termites are a non-native and invasive species which traveled to Florida through shipping boats. Florida has a tropical climate which is ideal for growth of these termites. Spring is the peak breeding season for Asian subterranean termites. They multiply quickly and the queen can lay several thousand eggs for reproduction daily. These termites can cause severe damage to buildings and it can be very costly to restore the damage. More than 600,000 homes in the US are infested by termites every year. Asian subterranean termites can have been spreading rapidly in Florida with South Florida being the worst impacted. These termites feast on anything which contains cellulose which is their major food source. They will be particularly aggressive in consuming wood and wooden items which have high levels of cellulose. They can quickly infest and consume items like wooden furniture, flooring, ceilings, outposts, etc. They are also known to infest residential trees and eat their heartwood. This makes the trees weak and ultimately becomes fatal for them. Asian subterranean termites live underground and can cause damage to the foundation of your house. This can render your house dangerous and unsafe to live in. The extent of damage caused by the Asian subterranean termites can be understood from the fact that they cause damage worth $5 billion each year in the US alone. Most house owners have to pay the restoration expenses from their own sources as termite infestation damage is generally not covered in insurance policies.
Acting timely is very important in resolving the problem of infestation caused by Asian subterranean termites. It is important that you should regularly keep monitoring the symptoms of infestation. The earlier you spot these symptoms, the more convenient and cost-effective it will be for you to deal with the problem. On coming across such signs of infestation, you should seek support from professional pest control agencies. Many house owners plan to deal with the problem themselves which is strictly not recommended. Toro Pest is a professional and experienced pest control company which has rich experience of termite extermination. They provide free inspections and SENTRICON certified solutions which target the king and queen of termite colonies. This ensures that the entire termite colony is finally destroyed and the termite infestation problem is resolved permanently.
Worried About Termite Damage? You Should be.

Asian, Formosan and Eastern Subterranean Termites.
