Ants and Termites
Ants and termites in the US destroy many of our homes and valuable wood objects each year. Billions of dollars are spent to prevent Ants and Termites from destroying homes built out of wood. Even ones built out of steel and masonry can be compromised due to these pests. If left unchecked they can systematically destroy our homes and neighborhoods.
Termites can exists in many environments, but like areas that do not exceed an annual outdoor temperature of 50 degrees. Termites make up two-thirds of our nations annual pest control budget.
Ants like damp climates and are not as devastating as Termites, but can cause as serious of a problem as their friends. Ants do not use the wood for nutritional value, but use your wood for shelter.
