Did you say Termites?!
Just say the word termite and homeowners cringe. These tiny wood-eating pests are capable of great destruction, causing an estimated $5 billion in damage annually.
Of the more than 2,500 known species of termites, 50 of them are found in North America, predominantly located in warmer climates. Even though they are commonly mistaken for ants, these insects are more closely related to wood-eating cockroaches.
