Commonly found in the southern United States, Formosan termites have earned the nickname “Super Termite.” In as little as three months, a colony of Formosan termites can wipe out a home; munching on 15 ounces of wood a day. Yes, they’re destructive!
Some eleven U.S. states have reported Formosan termites. These include (in no particular order): Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Mississippi, California, and Louisiana. The reason they are found in theses states, and not states with colder climates, is because the Formosan termites eggs will not hatch in colder temperatures (below 68 degrees).
Formosan termites are a very severe pest control problem, and can be extremely difficult to exterminate. They are so bad, that once the have been well established in an area, they have never been 100 percent completely exterminated for the area in its entirety. Formosan termite colonies are huge, with nests burrowing 300 feet into the ground. It’s best to catch and treat them early if you can, with professional termite control, to avoid significant property damage.
