About Formosan Subterranean Termites
Formosan Subterranean termites are generally found in the warmer southern areas of the United States. Because of their ability to consume a vast amount of wood in a short amount of time, they are sometimes called “the super termite.” A healthy adult colony of Formosan Subterranean termites can eat up to a pound of wood a day. The queen of the colony can lay up to 1300 eggs a day. Because of this, the Formosan Subterranean can cause the highest amount of property damage of all termite species in the United States.
Formosan Subterranean termites also don’t just stick to wood. They have been known to eat wood, plaster, plastic, and even metal. A tell-tale sign of a Formosan Subterranean infestation is a bulging of your walls. This is caused by the termites creating tunnels inside the walls made of their saliva and feces. When you see this bulging, time is of the essence, and you need to get a professional to come take care of your problem before the problem causes major damage to your home.
