It is estimated that termites cause over $5 billion in damage per year for homeowners. Subterranean and Formosan termites account for most of the damage and are the most aggressive feeders. Drywood termites are common, but feed much slower due to a smaller colony size.
Subterranean termites find weak points in your home where they can access the cellulose that they need for food. Cracks in slabs and utility penetrations are common access points.
With subterranean termites, it may not be readily obvious that there are termites in your home. Wood can become structurally compromised without showing any signs of damage until the termites are solidly established.

Why do termites exist?
Termites are nature's recyclers, turning dead wood back into soil. They are present through all of Florida, and have been found in every state except Alaska. When outside, they pose no threat; but when they target our property, action needs to be taken.
The average repair cost for termite damaged wood can range between $2,500 - $4,500. Protecting your home against these invaders can save you money.
