There’s a lot of misinformation out there about termites. People often think they’re only a problem in the south, or that they only eat wood. The truth is, termites can be a problem anywhere, and they’ll eat anything made of cellulose – including paper, cotton, and even plastic!
Despite their bad reputation, termites are an important part of the ecosystem. They help break down dead plant material, which helps new plants grow. They also play an important role in composting.
For many, the mention of termites summons up images of destroyed homes and businesses. While these pests are a nuisance, they rarely cause the level of damage seen in the movies. In fact, according to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), termites cause more than $5 billion in damages annually in the United States. The NPMA also reports that most homeowners will only experience a termite infestation once during their lifetime.
Termites can cause a lot of damage to a home, but are they dangerous to humans? Termites are not dangerous to humans unless they are disturbed. If you see termites in your home, it is best to call a professional to deal with the problem. Termites can cause a lot of damage to a home, and they can also contaminate food sources.
