Subterranean termites are known to cause severe damage to wooden structures. These pests have a huge appetite and build tunnels in the soil below your property.
They expand their tunnels from the soil to the wood in contact with it, thus getting access to your home. Subterranean termites can also build mud tubes from the soil on concrete foundations or through cracks and crevices in the foundation to gain access to the wooden structure in your home.
Once these pests build colonies on your property, they may chew through that wood to create more tunnels. This activity can weaken the structural integrity of your building in the long run.
