Subterranean Termites can tirelessly attack your home 24/7 causing dangerous and costly structural damage if left undetected.Subterranean termites tunnel their way through wooden members, such as timbers in the structure of a house, as they search for and consume cellulose, the material found in the plant cells of wood. As a rule, Subterranean termites travel above ground for food (cellulose) and underground for moisture.What should I watch out for?• Mud tunnels – A termite mud tunnel found between the soil and wood construction of your home is a sign of infestation. They are most likely to attack from beneath the structure, gaining access through the smallest cracks and imperfections in the foundation.
