Damage Potential of Asian Subterranean Termites
Florida has seen an exponential growth in the number of infestations resulting from Asian subterranean termites. The Asian subterranean termites are the major invasive termite species in the state. Florida’s tropical climate provides the perfect environment for these termites to breed and flourish in. South Florida is the worst affected by these termites in the state of Florida. Studies have estimated that nearly half of all the buildings in South Florida will be affected by Asian subterranean termites by the year 2040. This is a worrying statistic which also emphasizes the nature and extent of damage caused by these termites in Florida.
The Asian subterranean termites have a profound affinity for cellulose which is their major food source. They will voraciously consume anything from which they can derive cellulose. Since wood has high levels of cellulose, the termites attack any wooden item they can find inside or outside your house. They feed on wooden furniture, flooring, ceiling, outposts, etc. These termites eat along the grain of the wood and weaken these structures. Since they live underground, they can also gain access to the foundation of your house through gaps, cracks, conduits, etc. They can weaken the foundation and cause severe structural compromise to the house. This makes the house unsafe for the residents and it should be dealt with immediately. The Asian subterranean termites are also lethal for trees. They have a particular liking for native tree species of Florida. They eat the heartwood of trees and weaken them from inside and the tree eventually dies or is felled during storms.
Infestation caused by Asian subterranean termites are difficult to spot and can keep damaging your house considerably.
