The Termite Problem
TERMITES ARE CALLED the Silent Destroyers — they often go undetected until their damage is done. Flooring, framing, ceilings, furniture – the destruction can be staggering, and it is rarely covered by homeowner insurance. Termite damage can collapse a building entirely, meaning possible financial ruin for a property owner.

The Source of Termites
IN THE TIDEWATER region, the Eastern Subterranean Termite is usually responsible for damage to structures. Once the termites detect cellulose on a structure (say, your house), lacking other food sources, they will try to access the house for food.
Subterranean termite colonies live 5-10 feet deep into the soil, often within 50 feet of a food source, and the termites must be surrounded by soil all the times. Thus, they build mud-tubes and tunnel through them to reach the wood of the house. Once tubes are built, the colony begins its attack.
