Rain, Hurricanes and Termites – Oh My!
The summer months are a busy season for our South Florida climate – it covers the rainy season, hurricane season and termite season. According to an article in the Palm Beach Post, researchers at UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences published a study in the journal Florida Entomologist which predicts an increased risk in termite activity through 2040. The study predicts that subterranean termite activity will expand in South Florida, placing half the structures in South Florida at risk of infestation by 2040.
Florida is currently home to six invasive species of termite: Dampwood Termite, Drywood Termite, Formosan Termite, Subterranean Termite, Conehead Termite, Desert Termite. While South Florida is the only location in the continental U.S. where the spread of Asian and Formosan termites, the most destructive of the termite species, overlap. Asian and Formosan subterranean termites are estimated to cause about $32 billion in damage annually, worldwide, including the harm to structures and the measures to control them.
As part of this study researches note the on-going concerns of a “Super Termite” which is a hybrid termite that results from the cross breeding of the Formosan and Asian species. The greatest concerns regarding a hybrid termite risk are their ability to cause damage more rapidly than other traditional species as well as the ability to get them under control.
