Termites & wood destroying insects

Termite truck

Wood destroying insects include some of the most economically important pests of structures.  Of these, termites are perhaps the most important for Texas homeowners.  The eastern subterrranean termite is the most commonly encountered species, but drywood and Formosan termites are also a problem for some homes (especially along the Gulf coast).  A variety of wood-infesting beetles can also damage structures and articles of furniture.  If you own a home, you owe it to yourself to be familiar with these pests.
