The Formosan Subterranean Termite is generally found in the warmer southern areas of the United States in addition to Hawaii. Because of its ability to consume a vast amount of wood in a short amount of time, this type of termite has earned the nickname “the super termite.” In fact, a health adult colony can eat up to a pound of wood a day. In addition, the queen of the colony can lay up to 1300 termite eggs a day. Because of this, the Formosan Subterranean Termite can cause the highest amount of property damage of all the termite species in the United States.
These termites don’t just stick to wood, either. They have been known to eat wood, plaster, plastic, and even metal. A tell-tale sign of a Formosan Subterranean Termite infestation is in the bulging of your walls. This is caused as the termites not only eat the walls, but they create tunnels made of their saliva and feces. When you see this bulging time is of the essence and you need to get a professional to come take care of your problem before the colony eats you out of house and home, literally!
