There are several species of termites in the United State, but in Kansas City there is but one, the Subterranean Termite. They derive their name from the obvious, their colony must live underground. If they stayed there all would be well but worker termites feed on cellulose from wood. They either find wood at soil contact or they build mud tunnels over barriers such as foundations and then they tunnel till they find wood. The tunnels keep them out of daylight and keep moisture available.
Termites in nature are beneficial insects. They help decompose dead wood and enrich the soil. Unfortunately houses are made, at least partially, of wood and the termites do not distinguish between tree limbs and 2×4’s.
Termites do millions of dollars in damage every year. Often the damage is severe before the homeowners know it exits. These tricky insects can hollow out an entire beam leaving only its shell.
