Their original design was to eat the fallen and dead wood on the forest floors but when mankind started building houses in the trees place they caught right on and moved in. From the earliest wooden structures to the large spacious homes termites have and will continue to find there way in and do what they were intended for, eat wood.

When exposed to light they build mud tunnels which jeep the light out and when they find a crack in your home even the thickness of a business card they move right in to the darkness of your wall voids.
