Did you know that Termites are also called white ants?! But they're not ants at all, they're actually ancestors of the dreaded cockroach! Similar to ants, they have male and female “workers” and “soldiers” in the colony. Their fertile males called “kings” answer to the fertile female or the “queen.”
Termites mainly feed on wood, dead plant materials, animal feces, soil and leaf scraps. Some woods attract termites more than others, it depends on the density, hardness, and moisture content. Whether you believe you have a house that is attractive to Termites or not, you should always be on the look out. Termite damage is no something you want to recover from.
