Preventing termites is a top concern for homeowners – or at least it should be. Termites are small, but they are capable of costing homeowners thousands of dollars each year in damages.
A termite infestation can happen in every corner of the globe, but mainly in homes where people use artificial heating.
On an average, there are as many as 14 termite colonies for each acre of land. Therefore, it’s possible a single dwelling could have four colonies on the property, and 1 million subterranean termites can inhabit a single colony alone.
