Termites or “White ants” as they are commonly known are social insects. Subterranean termites live underground in a colony comprising of queen, king, workers and soldiers. There could be millions below the ground, inside walls, furniture etc.
Termites are the biggest threat to assets which man cherishes to own. Studies in the us have proved that termites cuase more damage than fires, Floods and Cyclones every year.
Termites are silent destroyers and their treatment is necessary. By the time they surface, 80% of the damage would have been done. They feed on anything containing cellulose ranging from wooden furniture to books.
