Where Do Termites Strike?
Florida enjoys a temperate climate and warm temperatures for most of the year. Unfortunately, this climate entices pests in large numbers. Termites especially thrive in warm, moist climates like that of southern Florida. Just because you don't have a wood-framed house doesn't mean your property is free of termites. All homes – new, old, wooden, stucco, block, and more – are vulnerable. Termites feed on any material made from wood, including paper products, cardboard, and furniture. This means that your wooden furniture, boxes, interior walls, and attic trusses are all threatened by these pesky critters.
Florida termites flourish all year long, meaning they are an ever-present nuisance. In Florida, there are 3-5 active termite colonies per acre of land, with an average of 60,000 working termites per colony. Unfortunately, insurance policies do not cover damage created by termites. Each year, there is over $500,000 worth of termite damage in Florida alone. Be sure to take precautions before costlier repairs are required.
There are four common types of termites: • Subterranean Termites – Live underground and build mud tubes to feed on wood and cellulose items before returning back to the soil. • Dampwood Termites – Feed on damp and decaying wood. • Drywood Termites – Feed on any material made of cellulose, such as paper, furniture, cardboard, walls of homes and buildings, door frames, and attic trusses. • Formosan Termites – Make nests that retain moisture, similar to subterranean termites. Their nests can have more than one million working termites.
