“Where The Grass Is Always Greener”
A termite in South Florida that causes extensive damage to countless homes is the subterranean termite. These small insects work through wood 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Their colonies grow to be massive. Subterranean termites need plenty of moisture to survive. These termites live underground, and they build tunnels in their search for food. They reach above-ground food by constructing mud tubes. Subterranean termites eat wood and other kinds of cellulose materials.
Drywood Termite Control Palm Beach Gardens
Sources say drywood termites are the most destructive of the species and cause the most damage to homes. Drywood termites are ravenous and need no moisture to survive. They are larger than most other termites and will eat through the inside of structural planks. Drywood termites are also known to eat:
• The framework of homes,
• Plastic containers, and
• Upholstery and clothing, if made from plant-based fabric.
Preventative termite control can help keep drywood termites away from your home.

The absolute minimum homeowners usually spend to repair damage caused by termites is about $3,000. Damage is actually more extensive in most cases because it’s seldom obvious that termites are at work eating their way through wood. The following are a few of the visible signs that you have termites:
• If you have unexplained cracks in your interior walls, it could be because termites have consumed the cellulose in the wood inside the walls.
• The attic is a common place for termites to cause destruction. If you see piles of sawdust in your attic, it’s time to call for termite control.
• If doors and/or windows are sticking, it could be because the wood is infested with termites.
• Blistering, sagging wood floors are another potential sign of termites.
