Termites typically feed on dead plants and wood. This is why your home is ideal food for them. Termites will generally enter at the sill plate or door bucks of a home. There are four different types of termites in a colony. These include Kings, Queens, Workers, and Swarmers. The average colony will eat approximately one foot per year. This is why it is imperative to identify and treat the problem as soon as possible.
