Termites, aside from being the most destructive insects in the world, are quite interesting. Some facts about termites might surprise you. First, even though they are very small creatures, when you total the weight of these creatures, it amounts to more than the total weight of all humans.

Unlike humans, termites stay busy. Their colonies operate every day and night of the year, consuming wood non-stop 24/7. That is why damage from these eating machines totals over 2 billion each year.

Scientists label termites as social insects because they have an organized existence and raise their young in a group. That is part of the resilience they have developed from living on this planet since the time of dinosaurs.

They adapt to their circumstance; for this reason, they have wings to get around until they decide on a permanent location. Once they settle, they shed the wings because they don’t have any use for them.

If it wasn’t for the fact that they can eat your house out from under you, they might even be fascinating. Fortunately, humans have still proven to be a little smarter than termites and pest control experts can keep them at bay when defenses are put into place and maintained.

On the other hand, a lapse in protection can be very expensive. Don’t take a chance on your personal residence or other costly property investments. Stay protected against termites.
