This subset of the subterranean pest can create an extra barrier, called a carton, which helps their nest retain moisture, allowing them to stay above ground for longer periods. Because of this, and their large colony size, Formosan termites consume more cellulose and create more property.
Damage They Can Cause
There are several steps homeowners can take to prevent a termite infestation. Try to avoid an accumulation of water by the foundation of your residence, and create a path for water to drain using gutters or downspouts. Further ensure termites stay away by reducing humidity in confined spaces, and removing any contact between structural wood and the surrounding soil. While these steps are important measures for all homeowners to take, the best option for preventing a termite infestation—and keeping it from becoming a costly, dangerous problem—is contacting a professional for a termite inspection.
