What are termites?
Eastern subterranean termites are destructive wood-destroying insects commonly found in Nashville, throughout Middle Tennessee, and most of the U.S.
They are social insects that live underground in large colonies with three distinct divisions of labor: workers, soldiers, and reproductives.
The workers are creamy white in color and are blind.
The soldiers look about the same as termite workers except they have elongated yellow heads and large jaws to protect the nest.
The reproductives or kings and queens are dark brown or black, larger in size, and have two pairs of translucent wings that eventually break off. These discarded wings can be homeowners’ first sign that they have a termite infestation.
Are termites dangerous?
Termites do not bite, sting or carry diseases that can be transferred to humans. Termites can, however, be extremely dangerous to the structural integrity of your home. They live in large colonies with thousands to millions of termites can cause massive amounts of damage to the wood in your home, which can lead to costly amounts of structural damage.
Why do I have a termite problem?
Termites feed on the cellulose in wood, leaves, and soil. Wood is especially attractive to them if it is moist or has water damage. You will find termites in and around your home looking for these food sources.
