In the United States, subterranean termites are found in every state except Alaska. They are most abundant in warmer climates, where structural infestations are common. Subterranean termites are the most economically important wood-destroying pests in the United States. Unfortunately, when land is cleared for human habitation the termites present may eventually pose a threat to the wood used in construction because their natural food resources have been removed. Nationwide, treatment and prevention of subterranean termite infestations costs approximately $2 billion per year.

Subterranean termite colonies, which can contain thousands to millions of termites, are formidable, even though each individual termite is soft-bodied and delicate. In nature, subterranean termites are closely associated with the soil habitat where they tunnel to locate water and food (e.g., wood, fallen logs, and other cellulose-containing materials). Termites excavate galleries throughout their food as they consume it. They conceal their workings and can completely honeycomb wood by feeding along the grain and following the softer spring wood, leaving little more than a thin wooden exterior. Subterranean termites construct above ground earthen runways (shelter tubes) that protect them from the drying effects of air as well as from natural enemies, such as ants. Termites are very susceptible to dehydration, and thus they are dependent on moisture sources.

Billions of dollars are spent annually to control subterranean termites and to repair the damage they cause. Only recently have scientists begun to unravel many of the biological complexities of these cryptic subterranean insects. We are only now becoming more aware of the opportunistic nature of subterranean termites and the plasticity of their life cycle, colony structure, and foraging behavior. The developmental flexibility of termites enhances their ability to disperse and to establish new colonies. Knowledge of termite biology ultimately provides a firm foundation for understanding control measures and for developing new termite control technologies. With these understandings, our company only offers the best chemicals that utilize the biological principals of the termite infestation and their behaviors.
