SUBTERRANEAN TERMITES

Subterranean termites cause an estimated $5 Billion in structural damage each year! They're also the most common type of termite found in North America. They feed on cellulose material such as wood buildings, wooden fixtures, paper, books, and cotton. A colony of termites can range from 20,000 workers to as high as 5 million workers. The primary queen lays 5,000 to 10,000 eggs PER DAY, adding to the size of the colony! This is why choosing the best pest control company backed by the leading termite treatment products to defend your property is so important!

TERMITE LIFE CYCLE

Subterranean termites share resources and labor among the entire colony population. This is known as the caste system. Both male and female termites are split up into the following three areas; WORKER, SOLDIER, and REPRODUCTIVE. Each and every termite living within the colony has specific duties to keep things up and running.


EGGS & LARVAE – after the fertilized queen lays her eggs they become larvae. The Larvae grow to develop into one of the three WORKER, SOLDIER, and REPRODUCTIVE.


NYMPHS – are a young termite will go through a process called molting. During this process, it will develop a soft exoskeleton under its current hard exoskeleton. Once the termite reaches maturity it will shed its outer exoskeleton, and the layer exposed will harden. It will continue to go through this process based on the needs of its colony.


WORKERS – the "worker" termite is around 3 mm in length. It is wingless, soft-bodied, white/grayish in color with a round head. The worker termites are also BLIND! They make up the majority of the termites that actually eat wood. Their job duties include; foraging for food and water, constructing and repairing shelter tubes, feed and groom other termites, care for eggs and young, and help provide colony defense.


SOLDIERS – the "soldier" termite also has no wings and looks similar to the worker except they have a big, yellow/brown head and mandibles. Their main job duty is colony defense. They use their mandibles for crushing enemy ants that try to invade. They also have a secondary defense on the top of their forehead known as a gland pore. This gland pore will secrete a blend of terpenoid compounds defending the colony from predators such as ants. Soldiers only make up about 2% of the colony population. Soldier termites are also not capable of feeding themselves so they rely on the worker termites to provide them with food.


REPRODUCTIVE – the "reproductive" termite also known as "nymphs" can be identified by wing buds. Mature reproductive adults are capable of leaving the nest and outbreeding. They are 8.5-10 mm in length to the tips of their wings. They have compound eyes are dark brown to black. After leaving the nest and swarming, male and female plates pair shed their wings and begin excavating a new nest, and mate. From this point forward they are known as the KING and QUEEN.
