Death To The Queen
Termites are silent, hidden, and relentless. They are an invisible problem, and damage is rarely protected by homeowners insurance. Termites exist in every state except Alaska and infest 1 in 20 U.S. homes even those with brick, siding, or stucco exteriors. Termites cost homeowners an estimated 5 billion dollars in property damage every year. In Louisiana, our homes can be infested by both Subterranean and Drywood termites.
Did you know that termite colonies owe their source of power to the queen termite. Termite queens are the originators of an entire colony. The termite queen provides nutrients for her offspring, and the workers take care of the eggs. Those eggs hatch with some of the offspring taking care of the queen, and some go out and find food. Eventually, her offspring can produce another queen for another nest.
