We start to see termites in Rockwall around Spring. Ants, termites, ticks, and other insects seem to come out of nowhere, surprising homeowners. Termites are the most dangerous due to their ability to destroy homes and other structures. Termites are also called white ants and they feed on dead plant material, usually in the form of wood.
Termites can cause serious structural damage to buildings, homes and even crops or plants. Believe it or not, a termites contribution of recycling material actually has ecological importance. But, that doesn’t mean you shoudl allow termites to damage your home.
A typical colony of termites contains nymphs, workers, soldiers and reproductive individuals from both sexes. Colonies of termites sometimes contain several egg-laying queens.
Although termintes may intitailly target wood, once they are in a home, they will consume paper, cloth, carpet and other materials.
