Types of Termites & Termite Treatments
Termite treatments can be an effective means of termite control and that is good because a colony of unchecked termites can quickly multiply to a number in the thousands. Sometimes it is difficult to identify a termite, as not all look the same. Each of their roles in the colony may cause you to see certain kinds of physical characteristics at certain times of the year. There is always a king and queen termite at the center of the termite colony.
The termite queen’s sole purpose is to reproduce. Some termite queens can live for up to thirty years. The termite workers are blind and wingless, and they termite workers make up the largest proportion of the colony population. Termite workers are found mostly in the infested wood of the home. This is because the termite workers build the colony’s home structures, conduct repairs, and also forage for food and care for other termites in the colony.
Soldier termites are sterile, wingless and blind, and their sole function is to defend the colony from enemies. The winged reproductive termites, also known as swarmers, eventually leave the colony and swarm to a new location. The swarmers then shed their wings, pair up with a mate and reproduce, to start new colonies.
