Subterranean Termites live in underground colonies and feed on buried wood. When the initial wood supply is depleted the colony may be extended through shelter tubes to above ground wood. Shelter tubes are made from soil particles and are the color and texture of the local soil. The tubes are built on foundation walls, posts, pilings, anything that spans between soil and wood. In a larger nest, a queen and king may live for 15 years, with the queen laying up to one egg every 15 seconds for most of her life. These termintes can cause serious damage to structures often long before they are discovered causing more than $1.5 billion in property damage a year to over 600,000 homes in the U.S. Armor Pest Control offers a reliable termite control and pest control service that you can count on.
