Termites or White Ants are among the most difficult types of pests to completely eradicate. They are literally known as “wood destroyers” or “silent destroyers” and will be a constant threat to homes, barns, furniture and work areas. Termites feed on dead plants and wood and grow rapidly in ideal conditions where food, optimal temperature, moisture and shelter are present.

The Queen Termite, though easily identifiable by its size and function in the colony, is not visible to the outside world. She hides deep into the termite nest, sitting and just laying termite eggs. Unless the queen termite is removed from her nest, you will never be free from them.
