Unfortunately, all homes, regardless of their construction type, can provide cellulose food for termite infestation. They mostly damage paper, fabric, wooden material in our home & offices. Three of the more common home-invading termite species are Eastern subterranean termites, Pacific damp wood termites, and Southeastern dry wood termites. Termites range from 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in length. Because Termites mostly live underground and in the walls of your home, you are unlikely to see the termites themselves.
