Florida is a terrific home for termites. Although no one has ever been happy about having termites present in their home – they are quite common throughout South Florida. At Florida Pest Control Center our team of experienced pest control technicians know all too well about these damaging insects. Here we take a look at 10 interesting facts about termites.
- Termites do not actually sleep. They are awake 24/7 eating, burrowing, and building nests.
- Termites take care of their young as a group, all staying together.
- Once termites have nested in their new home, they will shed their wings.
- Termites do not have functional eyes except for the king and queen termites. Most termites are blind and communicate through vibrations and pheromones.
- Termites swarm in order to mate and start new colonies.
- The main predator for termites is ants.
- Termite queens can lay up to 30,000 eggs a day. That can be 11 million eggs in one year.
- The queen termite queen live longer than any other insect – up to 30 to 50 years.
- There are two main types of termites – subterranean termites and drywood termites. Each type requires a different method of extermination.
- Termites are expensive – causing approximately $5 billion in damages every year in the U.S. alone.
