As a homeowner, the last thing you want to think about is termite damage. But, as a homeowner, it is important to understand the damage that termites can cause. Termites will constantly search for new food sources. They consume wood from the inside out, making it possible for damage to go undetected for many years.
Eastern Subterranean Termites, the pervasive species in Connecticut, live in colonies up to eight feet underground. Being insulated from the sever winter weather allows them to remain active year-round, staying below the frost line and getting into foundations. If termites are found, a home will have, on average, a total of two to three active nests on site!
