There are approximately 45 species of termites in the U.S. Termites are social insects that live in colonies with caste systems, which means termites are organized into different social classes based on their roles and responsibilities. The termite caste system has three levels: reproductives, workers and soldiers.

Termites are often called the silent destroyer because they may be secretly hiding and thriving in your basement or attic without any immediate signs of damage. While each termite species thrive in different climates and eats different types of food, all termites require four things to survive – food, moisture, shelter and optimal temperature. Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide these ideal conditions for termite infestation.

Termites cause an estimated $5 billion of property damage every year. Termites eat 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which means damage to wood in and around a structure, can happen very quickly.
