About Termites & Termite Control

Effective termite control begins with knowing about them. Termites thrive in clusters and reach the hundreds and millions. A termite colony employs self-organized and decentralized systems of activity in using their surroundings to get and detect sources of food. They work side by side with other termites to obtain food that may be difficult to get when working alone. Semi-mature youngs (nymphs), workers, soldiers, and reproductive individuals of both sexes, along with egg-laying queens at times, make up a typical colony.

Of the estimated 4,000 termite species, about 10 percent could cause glaring damage to structures as well as crops and plantation forests. As major detritivores—the organisms that feed on dead organic materials—termites are somehow of significant ecological importance. They are essential in recycling plant matter, particularly in the tropical and subtropical regions.
